Hey all,
I have a Manners stock on the way for my Tikka T3x 6.5 Creedmoor.

What other upgrades should I do at the same time?

- Mountain Tactical - Bottom Metal
- Mountain Tactical - Billet Magazine

Currently running Talley lightweight rings, but should I upgrade?

Already installed a new trigger spring.

This rifle will a hunting rig that will be shot at the range (but not exhaustively)

I did the Mountain Tactical setup on mine to be able to run AICS mags and thus Magpuls.
Talleys are great rings for a lightweight hunting setup. I have ran them and the Tacticals on numerous rifles.

I just back the trigger to it's lightest setting around 2 lbs and that is perfect for a hunting rifle for me.
I tested the new Timney 2 stage but went back to the stock trigger.

Sounds like the Mountain Tactical is about all I have left.

Thanks

yeah, the bottom metal works great with a 5 round AI mag but the Pmags don't work, they require a minor mod to work that is listed on their site that I haven't got around to yet.
