    Tikka 6.5 Creedmoor

    Here is a T3 Tikka I put together a wee while ago now.



    Sold it to a client that is recovering from a shoulder injury so was looking for low recoil.



    Shoots the 123 SST pretty well, here is the full load development.



    He is a happy camper

    Maybe something to do with the intended recipients shoulder injury and request for low recoil?

    Have you tried 100 grain Barnes for low recoil hunting? Should be capable of most game animals with even less recoil.

    Another well put together package there Greg!

    I was going to look at them, but its difficult sometimes if you have price conscious clients....
