Hey all,
Probably picking up a Tikka t3 Lite stainless in 300 wsm. Heard horror stories about the recoil. Any advice (if true) how to tame it?

Never shot a 300wsm but have shot 300wm a bunch and if memory serves me, both will launch a 180 gr bullet at the same speed. Tikkas are good rifles but tend to be on the light side. THINK about it!!

Iím not trying to be a tough guy, but Iíve never shot a rifle that was too much recoil in a hunting situation. And that includes .300wby and .50 Beowulf. If itís a hunting rifle, you likely wonít shoot it more than once or twice at a time. You should be fine.

Caribou,
I'm with you. After it is sighted in it will at most be shot a few times a year. Once to verify zero and the rest on game.

Is $577 NIB a fair price for a lefty?

I have one. Shooting targets I have a lead sled. Shooting an animal you donít really feel the recoil anyway.

Fireman,
Do you know how much the gunsmith work costs?

You can get a barrel threaded for $75 or so

Timed brakes cost more, because it requires more time. I think that scenario is $100-$150. I am waiting on a reply from a gunsmith friend.

Thanks, Fireman, looking forward to hearing. Is that fair/good price for a new one?
