Tikka T-3 action
Glades armory bolt handle

This is the "rental rifle" for guys that want to come shoot the class, but don't have their own rig.

Did the final load testing this morning in the soup. Cold and wet, but I had to get it done. This rifle is going into service on Thirsday, so I gotta get some ammo built.

162 gr. A-maxes atop H-Varget. Making 2620 fps on virgin brass.

I believe this will do fine.

Very nice. up

I might have to take your class one day. I've been shooting since I was a kid but wouldn't say I'm a great shot by any means lol. No telling what all I've been doing wrong

I'm glad mines already being built. Otherwise you would think I was trying to duplicate yours. Right down to the 21" obermyer. Looks great. Except the bolts on the wrong side.

As much as a rock.......


I don't know, I still don't have any scales. Anybody got some kind of old antique scale I could buy? That's what I really want.
