I don't know what we are talking about anymore but man I've got the urge to shoot guns and watch Justice League :chuckle:

Rifle's,women, and accessories....not necessarily in that order...keep up man.. :chuckle:

Good thing my rifle's and my wife came factory how I wanted them.... otherwise sounds really expensive.. :yike:
I like my rifles way fancier than my women  :chuckle:

Ha haaa any woman might be fancier than the rifles I have!  Hopefully this weekend I am going to shoot my brother's Winchester Featherlight model. He loves it but I think I want stainless after looking at the Tikkas a moment ago.

The only draw back to my sons Tikka 270 wsm is the hammer it drops on the shoulder. I went from the bench to the gunsmith to put a break on that thing to tame her down. I have no idea if itís the design of the stock or what but they flat out kick! It shoots lights out though :tup:

I put a limbsaver on mine. Really tames them down.

Wsm is burning a good bit more powder than the Win. Doubt recoil will be an issue with the 308 or 270. Limbsaver is ALWAYS a worthy upgrade though. Don't think anyone has ever wished their gun had MORE felt recoil  :chuckle:

Which specific pad would you recommend?  My son shoots a 300 weatherby vangaurd that could use a little taming.

for a 300 weatherby, I'd recommend a MBM 4 port beast muzzle brake  :chuckle: 

But seriously,  I have no idea who makes pads for weatherby rifles. Im sure limbsaver has a model that fits :dunno:

Did it increase the LOP? My kid is at the max LOP with the factory pad

Mine gained may 3/8" with a Limbsaver but that was years ago.
They may have a new spec now.

Thanks I will look into that. With the break and a nice cushy pad it will be like shooting a BB gun  :chuckle:


Sorry for the derailment. :jacked: Back to the original topic

If someone doesn't like the plastic stock most Tikka's come with they have a few different models that come with pretty decent wood stocks. 

They aren't for me because they typically kick like a mule but everyone talks about their super lightweight guns but then they all b1tch about the plastic stock.  Unless you plan on spending considerably more than a factory Tikka cost it's pretty hard to get a 6 lb rifle without a plastic stock and though I'm no fan of plastic stocks, as plastic stocks go, the one on my Tikka compact is better than most.

I  have a SAKO A7 Roughtech in .270 win, scope and ammo listed: https://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,265371.0.html
I have the tools to install the scope back on the rifle if you buy it all.

Hells Canyon Speed and a VX5 in .270.  I hate the Rubbermaid stocks on the Tikkas.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice
