I am turning one of my magnum Tikka T3 rifles into a 6.5 GAP 4S rifle. I am ordering a stainless Bartlein 6.5mm, #3B contour barrel with a 7.5" or 8" twist barrel to shoot the heavy Hornady 147 grain ELDM bullets about 3100-3200 fps! This will make a hard hitting magnum rifle that weighs about 7.5 lbs in a very good rifle platform. The rifle is blued and the barrel will be matte stainless for a nice two tone rifle. These Tikka rifles I have built easily shoot 1/2 moa, and many of them shoot under 1/2 moa. I'm not talking just 1/2" at 100 yards. I'm talking sub 1/2 moa at long range!
$1450, and you can tell me how long of a barrel and any other specs you want, if you order with me before I start the build. PM me here or contact me from my website! Thanks for looking!
What is a 6.5mm GAP 4s? It is a 6.5mm bullet fired from a 7 RSAUM (Remington short action ultra mag). Hornady makes the brass, and I'll make the ammo!
Here's a picture of the factory Tikka I will will this from:
