    Thanks for the info. As a teenager I tried to Swift my 22-250 and had a case head seperation in my 788. I backed off then and have kept MY loads sane since then. I've known guys that should have just gone straight to the .50 BMG and quit trying to...

    My brother had a 700 Classic in .350 RM and it was a great rifle/cartridge combo. The goober traded it for a Beretta o/u before I got a chance to swindle him out of it! The 600s are probably one of the most accurate factory rifles ever. And dang...

    I have cross examined and measured the bolt lugs against my two other Tikkas and they match. The headspace is ok, too. A friend in high school set his scale wrong and loaded max .270 Weatherby data in his .270 Win. Once we got his Rem 700 bolt open,...

    So far good advice on lightening the load and making the rifle heavier. I would add, have you considered a peep sight? They take some getting used to but increase the sight radius, and many of us with older eyes like them.

    I'd get it and use <90 grain Bullets and be happy for that price! I've killed a few deer with the .243/80gr PSP and always bang/ flop.

    I fired three of MY reloads remotely. Extraction was normal and the fired cases measure the same as brass fired last month. Primers, shoulders and necks all look good. Thank the Lord for watching over this idiot. Thank you Sako/Tikka for building...

    I just bought some 30-30 brass here with prepped/ enlarged flash holes so this thread is right on time! I will proceed with no worries now, dedicated mid range boolit loads for these.

    Well, my stupid gene resurfaced. I found a bag of 5 reloads in an estate haul. Good looking 25-06 with Hornady red tip bullets. I have a motley collection of my own left over reloads so yesterday I decided to shoot them all into one group for...

    I had to restake the firing pin on one once. Coal simple and diamond accurate. My broinlaw bought one in 1978 at a first Monday for $25 and it remains his only .22 rifle. He's good with it! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
