    Remington 700 5R, Tikka T3X Lite, Browning x-bolt hells canyon. Advice on a nice long range bolt gun

    Tikka CTR stocks, bottom metal and mags should be pretty easy to find on the used market or for a little more $ the KRG Bravo is a proven combo. Been there, done that.

    Tikka T3 Thread

    I haven’t tried to take a factory barrel off yet, so no direct experience there - yet... I ordered an X-Caliber pre-fit last week so I’m about 9-10 weeks from finding out. It seems that the earlier production rifles were installed by King Kong but the reports lately have been easier removal.

    Don‘t worry about the barrel nut vs. shouldered pre-fit barrels. There has been no real empirical data to prove one superior to another. The concentricity of the bore, rifling, threading and chamber machining are more important than how the the barrel is tightened against the forward face of...

    Bravo Chassis?

    I have had two barreled actions in the same Bravo stock. Started with a Tikka CTR in 6.5 CM , moved that action to a MDT ACC and then bought a T3 Lite in .223 to put in the Bravo because it was lonely. The Bravo is a great stock considering the price point. There are a lot of them out there...

    Use a pencil and make a reference mark on the scope rail. Loosen the two nuts that clamp the scope rings to the scope rail. Take the scope and rings off as an assembly. Torque the Rear Bedding Block Screw ( Why was it loosened ? ) Put the scope & rings assembly back on the scope rail Align the...

    Cabelas / Bass Pro have a Savage 12 FV that is more suited to what you want to do. It’s a few bucks more than the Axis, but a better rifle if you’re going to run up the round count. It’ll also have better resale value than the Axis Savage 12 FV @ Cabelas Find a good used scope in your price...

    Help with watch and backpack.

    I’ve had this Casio ProTrek for 5 years and it’s been a solid investment so far. It has solar charging so no batteries to replace. It has barometer / altimeter, compass and thermometer functions. Well worth the money.
