    Tikka m595 in 7mm08

    I bought this recently but I prefer the feel(and weight!) of my other rifle in the same caliber. Donít need two so out it goes. Itís in really good nick with some scuffs on the stock. Been used for hunting. Bore is clean and shiny, and the action and barrel are tidy. Price is for bare rifle and rings. I was planning on keeping the leupy vx1 scope for my .223, but can be negotiated if wanted. Barre is threaded, however I donít know what to. Itís the same as my factory howa, so thatís probably a good bet. I havenít actually fired the rifle as not has the chance. But the guy I bought it off said it was sub MOA. If I can find the time Iíll head out to the range for a wee shoot.
    Will get better photos when Iím home tonight, but it should be pretty obvious itís the one on the left if this is picked up I can offer at least one possibly two packs of 150gn federal ammo for a bit extra (my other rifle likes 139gn)
    After $900 but open to offers.

    Great rifle, a little heavy but lovely action.
    I have the M595 in 223.

    Whats the twist on the 7-08?

    How many magazines come with the rifle? 3 or 5 shot mags? Length of the barrel?

    Great rifles, I had one in 308 and it was a real shooter and well balanced. The palm swell on the 595 and 695 feel are more substantial
    than the new gen Tikka's from my experience.

    Measuring from the front of the receiver to the top of the barrel is 51cm, or 20”
    Comes with one 3 shot mag

    I have a Nikko sterling game master I will put on there. Hopefully I can get to the range Saturday to see how it groups

    Nikko sterling now installed and dialled in. I’m not generally the best bench shooter, and was getting some pretty bad mirage off the silencer from shooting a bunch with my .223. Also the scope is pretty average haha! A better scope and more time would definitely tighten that group right up. Was using federal blue 150gn
