As most of you know I picked up a Tikka 308 Varmint a couple of weeks ago. I have been buying a couple of trinkets here and there to personalize my rifle. I had picked up the Big Bolt and metal shroud from Hinterland shooting in Oz. Last week I went on vacation to New Mexico and met a couple of old friends. Charley from Score hi put one of his signature brakes on the end and a good friend bedded my stock and painted the rifle. I must say I like the end result and from the looks of the target on the bottom so does my Tikka, I shot the groups today using Federal gold match. I canít wait until my reloading equipment comes in next week, I am sure I can better them with home rolled ammo.

Won't be for a little while, but I plan on taking it to 300 yards this weekend.

Looking good, Ted. I picked up a Tikka T3 Varmint in 223 last week. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but may do so this weekend. I really don't care for the stock that comes with the Tikka too much with the amount of flex it has in the fore end. I'll be replacing mine with a Whiskey 3 Chassis (http://www.kineticresearchgroup.com/products/w3c.php) as soon as KRG finishes producing their next run.

I agree with the flex but it is an I beam compared to the Remmy 700 stock!! LOL. Bedding helped stiffen the stock, my fore end is stiffer now for whatever reason and does not flex on the pod. That KRG stock is nice!
