New old T3 7mm mag
« on: September 05, 2019, 12:10:48 AM »

I just found/bought a new/old stock Tikka T3 in 7mm mag for about $525
I love deals and I hope this one performs as I hope!

Youíve got me thinking , instead of another 6.5 /.264/.260 go for something in the 7mm

Hey Larkin, I bought the 7 rem mag in anticipation of getting mountain tac to rebarrel to 300 winmag with their long bottom metal and a new barrel.  I am now kind of keen on exploring the potential of the 7 rem mag with Tikka 9.5 twist.
I am focusing on 150 gr projectiles and waiting to see how it goes.

I hate slow twists, and Tikka is notorious for slow twist in 30 cal.  I now find they like slow twist in 7mm.  I should have known but Iím ok with reloading to the twist.

If I had my preferences I would spec a barrel with a 1:8 twist to run the more heavies.
