    Oh you will get the chance. I'm looking forward to shooting your RPR as well. It was a toss up between that and the Tikka when I purchased.

    It is. I really need to go buy a can. :confused:

    Ok, I'll repost here since it is sticky and add to it a little.

    img_1104-jpg.jpg

    Remington 700 5R 308 with 20" threaded barrel
    AICS stock
    PWS FSC muzzle brake
    Timney trigger
    Vortex Razor Gen I
    Seekins 20 MOA rail and rings


    Won't quite shoot groups like Otter posted but it is still going strong 2,000 rounds and counting.






    347193-082761b2ae177107338d0d29eeb1fb5e.jpg


    Ruger Precision Rifle
    Started life as a 308 but is now wearing a Proof Research 6.5 Creedmoor barrel, 24" 1:8 twist
    APA Lil Bastard Gen II muzzle brake
    Magpul PRS stock and MOE pistol grip
    Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27 in an ADM Recon mount

    Shoots pretty good. This is only a three shot group but it was the first three I had shot out of this gun (or any other gun) in about 2 months. Not bad. The 6.5 barrel has been on this gun for about a year now and it has about 600 rounds through it.

    I have been meaning to ask - was that trigger the stock trigger, or did you have something modified?

    Stock adjustable trigger. At the moment its set at 4lbs but it is adjustable down to 2lbs. It is so smooth at 4 I am afraid that if I dial it down to 2 and sneeze wrong I might send a round down range :cool:

    Well, I may not have shot it, but that trigger sure was nice :p Got me thinking Tikka in addition to the Savage. And there’s still the Ruger Precision! What to do?!

    Well when I get the opportunity to shoot my Tikka and @Kruejl RPR we can report back to you on what is better and why! Nothing better than have pro's and con's of both before spending that kinda money. ;)

    So it’s just a T3 not a T3x?

    Never mind I just realized that it’s the compact tactical so T3X

    Thats my point. Wait till you get a comparison on the two rifles and then make your decision. Knowing that we shot them side by side and can give you the best and worst of both. Might help you make a decision when you are ready to pull the trigger. ( Pun totally intended ) ;)

    I plan on waiting for the report. I don’t have a bolt action as of yet and I have been thinking of Tikka, Ruger Precision, Sako, or Savage.
