    It wasn't till this morning that I remembered I have (I think I still have it...) a RB/RP Tikka T-3 Stainless Lite/Synthetic stock, that is new in the box, chambered in 30-06.  I picked it up several years ago for a loaner gun, and it has never been shot.  I think it is their lightweight one.  I will need to check that later this week.  I totally forgot about it, until this morning.

    You fried his brain!!!  A gun he’s horribly lusting after in a chambering he’s NOT a fan of. Someone hit the brain reset button if he starts drooling! 


    I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬

    Since it’s in the box still, it’s not where I would normally keep things, and therefore it is out of sight and out of mind.

    A .308 bullet  with more velocity and throw weight?  I'm pretty sure he'll adapt just fine.

    Picked up as a loaner gun?  Dare I ask, right handed?

    I dug mine out last night. 
    Still in the box and unfired obviously. 
    But I was wrong on  one point.  It is NOT stainless. 
    Everything else was correct.
    Someone might be a little surprised, disgusted, amused (not sure of the emotion) that I would forget that I had a new Tikka rifle for 2-3 years.  I still have not checked to see when I got it.
    It is a right-hand Tikka T-3 Lite/Synthetic stock, that is new in the box, chambered in 30-06.
    It is still mine.
    Zee thought I might have been jerking his chain at first about having this new rifle

    Right, I'm disappointed in you lot . :)
    My main hunting calibre for years, as you know and there is a discussion that no one alerts me about.

    I haven't experimented with the newer Hornady projectiles as I'm comfortable with my supply of the older Amax in one and the Nosler Bt 120gr in the other.
    However.

    Get a Sako in the same calibre, you may well forsake all others.
    (well for awhile)
