    Tikka wanted -yeah i live near Auckland :(

    Looking at buying a new tikka from the Guncity sales.

    Just wondering if anyone wants to move their's on first?

    7mm Rem mag preferred, maybe a 30-06 or a 7mm08 that could become a 280AI.

    if you want a 280AI then you need to start with 3006 or 270 or 2506 - something LA, the 7mm08 wont work

    its amazing how meany people don't know that 223 has the same bolt as 300wm its just the bolt face, bolt stop and barrel that's changed
    mags don't matter ether a long action mag will fit a 223 rifle with no mods it wont work but it will fit

    Thanks for the offer but I already have a 270, and another long action t3.
    Trying to minimise my extra rifles so I need to buy another one, right?
    I figure a t3 in 7 RM will do everything the other guns can.

    I have one offer of a 7mm08 to ream to 280AI, but really think the 7mm Rem mag will be better.

    Anyone?

    fark all in it especially if you A.I it which you may as well. I'd be surprised if you were more than 100 fps off a rem mag.
