New Tikka vs Old
I have an older White tail Hunter in .30-06. Fabulous wood, heavy smooth as butter bolt, 1 MOA, or less at 100 meters, but, since shoulder surgery years ago, no fun to shoot. Today I picked up a TX3, wood/blue in 6.5×55 Swedish. Wood dark and no where near the quality as my 695, a fair amount of wiggle as bolt slides in and out, and seems of lesser quality than my 695. I've been off the forum for a long time and was unable to find a dealer with Tikkas to handle, so maybe this has been discussed to death. Is this the new norm? I got it because love bench rest shooting but the .30-06 is killing me. Thanks
