    My 1895 will never leave, but part of why I'm selling off a bunch of others is to get started with the Creedmoor. I've already picked up a hvy barrel Howa action, just have to pick the right stock and scope. That will primarily be a set-up/bench/long range P-dog and coyote rifle. I'm also looking at options for a lighter "walking" rifle. Ruger Hawkeye or American, Howa (Vanguard), and Savage are all options at the moment, but it sure would be nice if Tikka would chamber the Lite in the Creedmoor. I currently have a Ruger 77VT in 204 and a Tikka T3 Lite in 223 with a 1 in 9 twist that have stacked up a few dogs each. The 32gr Vmax in the 204 sometimes does incredible damage, but the Ruger is like a laser, so it gets used often.

    Woohoo! That's some awesome shooting. I think 1-8 twist would be optimum too (for me). nice

    Not to bad for sighting in and breaking in the barrel. Now it's time to work on some loads for it. Should be able to tighten the groups up a little

    Actually, my Coyote rifle is one I stole from my wife. (Traded for a new Glock) She won it in a gun show raffle. Savage Hunters special in .223. Replaced the stock scope with a VORTEX VIPER HS LR 30MM RIFLESCOPE 4-16X50 MOA XLR-LR. Sitting at my Cabelas rotating shooting table covered by a "Bush in a bag" camo cover. Sometimes with a cup of coffee, a lot of flat ground.

    Blue Lighting, 1-10" T3 .223

    She shoots 50 gr TTSX fast and accurate (above pic) and 50 gr BT faster (3400 fps) and maybe a hair better. Leupold FX3 12x40 AO with target turrets. Only a few song dogs so far. The rockchuck was around 350 yards as far as any of you know.

    .223 Wylde, 1/8 twist, 18.5" SS spiral fluted, SS muzzle brake, rifle length gas system, 3lb Velocity trigger. Worked up .223 reloads, shoots 5shots in a dime sized group at 100yds. Shot a lot of marmots with it but no yotes yet.
