    Now I just need to wait for stainless lites to ever come back in stock. That will give me plenty of time to pick a caliber... 223,22-250, or 243? I’m set up to load all 3. 223 is the most economical choice. But that’s pretty well handled by my gas gun. 22-250 is fun, and an 8 twist would be...

    I've had 2 done. No clearance issues. The coating is wearing off on the 300 I had done in 2014 but its had a rough life. The barrel and action look perfect. The 270 I had done in 2018 looks great. That one was spiral fluted which seemed to help the wear. For the money I would have LRI...

    Right! Those rifles don't interest me at all. IMO the thing that made tikka as popular as they are is the fact that they were a solid/inexpensive base rifle to change as you go. That's what I have done on the 5 I have owned.

    Looking through my notes I think 16 is the longest 223/556 I’ve ever had. Hopefully Hornady Superformance or a 55gr clone should scare 3000fps. The length is simply due to wanting it to be as short as possible with a suppressor. A trainer and a walk around coyote rifle. 17.5 would put me at...

    I will be going 1/2x28 direct thread. That’s the standard thread pitch for 223. Either running a 1/2x28 end cap or a shouldered 1/2x28-5/8-24 adaptor rockseted in place. Probably the latter.

    What magazines are you using? What does the set up weigh? I’m thinking of throwing a stainless light barreled action in a bravo chassis. Then cutting the barrel to 16 and threading it for a suppressor..

    Nope! But man do I know what you mean... For some reason nothing bothers me more than missing a coyote!

    Took my CTR 260 out calling coyotes in the Northwoods this weekend. No luck.(we had wolves howling all around each night which makes coyote pretty scarce). Probably the last adventure with the factory stock. I’m going back to a KRG bravo.

    I think they are available but super expensive like every Tikka aftermarket factory part. Like the fact that you can buy an aftermarket bolt handle for what the little ball and set screw on the CTR costs. These are sold out but I'm guessing that's standard pricing...

    Rifle Scopes Sub $350 scope for a practice/ coyote gun

    I am a Tikka fan. I have a 300, 270, and 260. I have it in my head that I want to buy a 223 lite and have the barrel cut and threaded to 16 for use with my can. This will be primarily a practice rifle/truck gun. I am looking for suggestions for an inexpensive scope with exposed turrets. I...

    21" 300 Win Mag

    I've done 2 of these. Now the 270(bottom) has a spiral fluted bolt cerakoted to match and a Razor LH. Current pictures are in the Tikka form. The 300 has seen WI, CO, WY, and AK. The bottom has hunted TX, WY, and WI. They both have a bunch of critters on them. I love it for a hunting set...

    21" 300 Win Mag

    I was wondering this as well. Especially as case capacity helps heavier weights vs 308. I was running through my data on this rifle this morning and my average MV is 3109 out of the current 24.375 barrel 180gr (Accubond). I expect to be over 3000-3025 with a 21". That's still over a lot of...
