    Trade/swap/sell

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone out there have a Tikka T3 Lite in 708 with full length barrel they want to sell trade or swap. I have a big boys gun (7mmRM) that we could do a swap with if needed. It's full length barrel, stock in mint condition. All load development is done and happy to share detail. Have ammo loaded that you can buy also. Has been wearing a dan hardy magnum can so is threaded ready to go. Suppressor not included

    Hahaha, I see our discussion yesterday was to no avail. Download the Rem Mag bro, you going to miss it once I convince you about the merits of Gillie style long range gong "hunting"

    You will however save some weight dropping to 284 (or keep it 708) using non mag suppressor. Note that less weight generally translates to more felt recoil so may not achieve the desired outcome to the extent you are hoping

    Thanks everyone for your concern /excitement and piss take. It has been a long thought process but after doing the sums on the 284 it appears there will be less recoil, and the magic 1000 ft pnds of energy is only at max 100m less in 284 with same projectile, so seems in my mind a no brainier really. Have loved the RM but it's time for a real man to take it on lol.

    In have a swaro already and have no intention of long range gong shooting as I prefer to take meat home. I am happy shooting out to 500 at mo and just starting to push from there. As you all know I have a 708 bush pig but want a designated long range rig and we'll the 284 in my view suits the bill. It will have a dan can magnum suppressor on it and a laminated stock so a bit heavier but should also be a nice shooter.

    If it all turns to poos then I will just go back to the RM;-)

    Mean time any keen folk out there

    Hey, Hamish what barrel length are u thinking for yr 284 ? I'm debating between a 280 and 284 project (light weight rig) at the moment, both have the pluses & minuses I guess. I just found the old Duley article from a year or so back, about their 284 Superpig. Reckon they were getting 2750 fps w 162AMAX out of 16 in barrel. Interested to know what others have found. Especially differences in barrel length vs velocity. I really want to get 2800 - 2900 fps with AMAX's and sub moa accuracy, and if I could get this from a 18 or 20 in barrel in 284 that would win me over vs a 284 with 24 in bbl.
