I went and picked this badboy up from Bass Pro Shop in Garland that I've had my eye on for a while. It is my second Tikka T3 and the only brand of rifle I will ever purchase. My first one was a .270 and this one happens to be a .300 Win Mag. This was the last one they had. It normally retails for $749 and some change. When the cashier rang it up we both found out it was on sale. I honestly think I ended up paying more for the scope. The guy said it was almost too good to be true but I was not going to sit there and argue with him. Anyway, with taxes the grand total was.....$487.09

Great buy.

The .300 win is one of my favorite calibers


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I have the .270, a real tack driver right out of the box. That is a great deal on the .300 win.

Wow!
What a great deal on what I've been told are great rifles. I've never owned one but everybody I know that has seems to love them.
