T3 3006 Lite – advice to upgrade to heavier barrel
So Tikka won't sell any 3006 heavy barrels to Canada, and I'd like one.
What barrel to replace would you replace Tikka T3 lite with in 3006?
I've really enjoyed the accuracy of my T3 in 3006 but it is wanting when I go to the range with the lite barrel on it. While the end result is that I want to hunt with it, I don't mind carrying around another couple of pounds with the heavier barrel and the extra time I get while not waiting for the barrel to cool down will let me enjoy it a little more.
Do you guys have any suggestions for a good heavy or even fluted stainless barrel to replace it with? I'm all ears.
*side note – I've heard various stuff about progressive twist barrels for 3006 from a guy who makes them in Alberta.
Yes – I know they're available in 308 in varmint but just am not as interested.
