Experience with rebarreling Tikka T3 Lite with Heavier Barrel
Anyone here have experience rebarreling a Tikka T3 lite with a heavier barrel contour? I love the Tikka action but now I'm interested in installing a Krieger M24 Contour barrel (1.2 breech/ .900 muzzle), with a 1/10 twist, 4 grooves.
Reason being I've recently experienced the limitations of a thin barrel profile (doing rapid long range fire). I know that the largest barrel a Tikka should be able to take is 1.160 due to the 1.2 face diameter of the action. But I've also read that people have had their gun smiths face off the action to be able to accept 1.2 diameter barrels with little problem.
Any input from the Tikka experts here, appreciated!
