We finished up a new Tikka T3 build in 6.5 Creedmoor about a month ago. I have not had time to post it up or shoot it but once (for barrel break in and a few test rounds.) The build is a factory blued Tikka T3 with the factory barrel removed. We chamber up a stainless 6.5mm Bartlein barrel, 1:8" twist, thread it and chamber it in 6.5 CM. The factory stock, trigger, bottom metal, and Tikka magazine are all factory, with the trigger tuned to about 2#. I put my old Simmons 2-10 scope on the rifle for barrel break in and testing a few rounds. I've shot maybe 15-20 rounds down it. It shot some easy 3/4" groups at 100 with some rounds I was testing with various powders and powder charges. With the same lot of match ammo, groups should easily be 1/2" or better. The Tikka rifles we have built in the past were easy 1/2 moa rifles. There are many members on the THF shooting the Tikka builds we have done in the past. For the money, this rifle set up will get you shooting the most accurate semi-custom rifle possible. The barrel is thick enough for target shooting, yet small enough for a light weight hunting rifle. The barrel is free floated in the stock all the way to the action.

Tikka T3 rifle- factory barrel removed.
Bartlein 5R, #3B contour barrel- 1:8" twist, 22" long, target crown (unthreaded)
As pictured, the rifle weighs 8 lbs, 3 oz on my mail scale (with scope). Simmons shows the scope to weigh 15 ounces, so the rifle by itself should weight 7 lbs, 4 oz.

The #3B contour is as large a barrel that will fit in the factory Tikka T3 stock.

Bartlein barrel contour info: https://bartleinbarrels.com/contours/

$1350 $1300, plus FREE 50 rounds of ammo! - no trades please (unless it's H4350 powder) Scope and bipod, not included. Factory blued Tikka rings are included.
Form 4473 will need to be filled out for transfer, as I'm an FFL. I can ship UPS insured to your FFL, for about $35 to $50, depending on location. If you want, I'll even include a free range day for you out to 800 yards at the Wolfe City, TX range. I don't want to tell you that this gun shoots, I want to show you that this gun shoots!

If you like, we can even make this rifle part of a package deal (see link below), with rifle, Nightforce scope, custom ammunition load work up, custom ammunition, and range instruction out to 800 yards.
