Thinking of building a suppressed calling rifle. I don't want an ar platform

Any examples and real life experience?

Patrick, my son has been shooting the Tikka T3 varmint model (heavy barrel) in 223 that I cut down to 17" shooting suppressed. It's an 8" twist barrel and shoots up to 75/77 grain bullets very well, mag fed. It is a great shooting rifle, and fun to shoot. He shot it in the Hunters Challenge match last year and did very well with it. We were running a 65 grain Sierra Game King, and it shot that load about 1/2 moa. If you want to take it and shoot it, let me know.

that's a great idea. I got a simmons scope ill make you a good deal on when you get it built. That may be an option for my 22-250

My truck gun is the Mossberg MVP Patrol rifle in 5.56. Bolt action, 16" barrel and synthetic stock. It uses standard AR magazines. More accurate than I expected it to be and it is compact enough to be able to snatch out of the back floorboard of my truck and get out the window in a hurry.

that's an awesome looking setup. I got a 26" 22-250 that needs a new life. I may have found it.

It's threaded in the photo, just has a protector on it. Wears a YHM Phantom Ti.

Not a 16", but my 9 year old daughter hunts pretty much everything in our part of the world with a CZ-527 in 223 cut to 18" and running an Omega. The next barrel may get cut to 16". I have a Specwar 556 K that should be approved any day now that will be the permanent can for it once it gets here. I chopped the stock and fitted an adjustable buttplate to it so it can go down as far as a 12" LOP and out to about 13 3/4, which is all anyone in our family needs.



It had my Harvester on it in this pic.
