I have decided to stay away from the heavy barrel Super Varmint, may get one of the T3'such as the Roughtek, they come threaded with a brake. Taking a T3 and putting it in a B&C stock and going to bottom metal won't get me threaded with a brake, and I'm thinking the 7mm Rem. Mag would need it. This rifle is going to maybe have 6-7 rounds per year through it, once I get it set up.



The B&C is a very solid upgrade from the factory stock. I spent weeks looking at every stock available for my lefty T3. There's absolutely nothing better for the price and immediate shipping. I love McMillan but they were $400 more with a delivery date of ain't-no-telling-when. My little cheap-o rifle has already killed a bunch of chit in the meantime. In fact, it dropped a nice sambar in Port O'Connor yesterday.

Did you draw a hunt on the Powderhorn WMA?


My buddy's son won the draw. I let him use my rifle and he dropped the hammer on a nice one. I'd love to hunt down there sometime.

So I shopped today, people saying Scheels is expensive ain't always right. Rifle cant be found anywhere, close to $1100.00 on line, and long wait. I bought this identical scope I think five years ago. Scheel's had both on the shelf. Walked up and couldn't believe it was in the caliber I wanted. The scope was $899.00, they have more. I don't see it for less than $1099.00 anywhere, and their on back order. [Linked Image]

They didn't have the rail I want, may be a while before I get to shoot it.

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Did it have the boss that mated up with the hole in the receiver?

I found the one I was after, Mountain Tactical on Midway site. It has the recoil lug that mates up with the hole in the receiver for the Gen 2 rifle I bought.

Good you found it, but they do fine with just the screws, FYI.

Why settle? Tikka put that hole for a recoil lug there for a reason.

Because sometimes you can't find a pic rail with that stud in it, in stock. I'm just telling you that it's fine if it doesn't have it.

I imagine you have the ability to wait if needed. Often, I do not.

I didn't wait, I bought the rifle and ordered the rail within a few minutes of getting home with it. It was easy to find, Scheels just didn't have it in stock. I'd cancel the EGW, or put it on a Gen 1 and order the Gen 2 rail from Midway.

I'd go straight to the rail with a Sportsmatch ring, and it has the recoil lug. They are bulletproof.

I'll check them out, not familiar with this make. Warne rings have a lug, but not integral. It's like a key.

Those might work, A dim. (base height) is 15mm.

I found some cheap ammo, Core Lokt is now "tipped", didn't know. I'll shoot it 7-8 rounds through it and may kill some pigs with it. I'll save the good stuff for final set up and Mule Deer season. [Linked Image]

All this and I'll prolly end up killing one at 100 yards that I could have killed with just about anything I already had.
