I've got a problem... and a new gun.

Post by BigJesse »

I can't stop. I need an intervention.
This time I got a bolt action.
Tikka T3X Lite in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-12x40

I'll be out this weekend with it and my handloads for the first time.

It'll be my hunting rifle and the occasional precision shooter (hopefully).

Updates:
Added a Caldwell bipod, it's cheap but so far so good.
Put a Limbsaver on it. Despite being 6.5 Creedmoor it still has some kick, especially with it being so lightweight.
Put a DIY cheek riser on it with a cut up pool noodle, some vet tape and an arm compression sleeve over the top of it all.

Can't wait to get a deer with it.ImageImage
