    Lightbulb What rifle to buy?

    Hey guys just after some advice Iím trying to decide what brand of 7mm rem mag to buy. I like the look of the kimber mountain Ascent, browning x bolt hells canyon, and tikka t3. Anyone have any experience with these rifles? Cheers

    I agree with buying a Tikka, but put a limbsaver on it.

    Hi I got a Kimber Mountain Ascent in 6.5 Creedmore, it shoots realy well, better than I though being such a super light rifle, the only thing I have against it is the feel, it doesn't have that feel of quality like my Sako, and I don't like the safety switch. I really think that you get a more rifle for your $ if you buy a Tikka.
    Cheers Lalle

    Have a look at the A7. For me the stock just feels right.

    Tikka's are good value, but the difference between the factory recoil pad and the Limbsaver I put on my 300 Win Mag is very noticeable, as Stug said well worth it.

    Thanks for your advice mate I’ve had tikkas for the past few years and they are great guns just thought I would try something different but judging on the advice I’m getting it’s going to be hard to go past the tikkas
