Nice looking gun. As far as which caliber, do you reload your own? If not you might want to consider the cost /availability of ammo. From what I've seen the 338 win mag is easier to find and cheaper than any of the newer short mag stuff, but that could be just in my area. Have you checked out the new Thompson Center bolts? Nice weapons.

Price of ammo shouldn't be a factor then.

71gr of RL-22 per round does get expensive if one shoots a bit....not to mention costs of bullet, primer, and brass.

Certainly less expensive than factory ammo, though.

Like I said on the other thread, I'd still pass on the Tikka.

That's a nice rifle, and the 300 short mag is a good round. As for elk hunting, not many of them running around north Florida, so I use a Remington 700 and shoot a .308.

But when in Rome... :smile:
