    WTB Tikka T3 Tactical/Varmint/Super Varmint .308win

    Gidday fullas, longtime watcher, first time poster. Hoping to track down a Tikka T3 heavy barrel in 308 and not really interested in getting mugged by G City. Anyone got any toys they would consider parting with? Sure to go to a good home, looking at a medium carry weight, middle distance precision/hunting build, other flavour of bang stick considered as well. Cheers

    Would think about the Remmy as the basis for a build, all comes down to slamming a decent trigger in, doing something about the blueing (rains here a lot) and sorting/stabilising the stock. Would prefer the tikka in all honesty but its up for consideration with a couple of mods for sure

    I'm not intending to be rude by why do you think you need a heavy barrel for hunting? If you're blazing away the extra heat sink in the barrel sure helps but my T3 lite in 308 shoots less than 1/2 inch groups with hand loads and is so light and easy to carry.

    Gidday Brakelie, not being rude at all matey, your not wrong about not needing a heavy barrel for hunting, the rig is gonna do a fair amount of volume blazing on steel as well, I was previously shooting a sako a7 in 308 and getting a shitload of shot wander after the 3 round of plinking (5 shot MOA guarantee my arse). Was looking at the heavy tikkas mainly cos they shoot and the carry weight is still pretty reasonable, my fat arse could use with lugging an extra pound or two of weight into the hills as well. If i manage to get enough trigger time in as well I like to do a bit more distance work as well as stocking the freezer and dont really wanna spend a fortune on the initial rig
