    Just got my new rifle put together. Wanting to extend my range a bit. Can't wait to take it out to distance. Anyone else have a new rig they're itching to shoot? 2befa01a6db427c106acae18944441e5.jpg 1daed998bce65476c1854260a02823e4.jpg

    Cool rifle. How long is the barrel? It looks short? 300wm is a little to much gun for my skinny but but man they pack some serious kinetic energy.

    23in barrel with an adjustable muzzle break. Savage claims a 30% reduction in felt recoil with the break open. We will see if that's true. Haha

    That's a cool rifle. Savage Bear Hunter. I looked at getting that in the 375 Ruger a couple years ago. Let us know how it shoots.
    I haven't gotten any new rifles in awhile, but I am upgrading my Mossberg 4x4 300 win mag so it doesn't beat the crap out of my anymore.

    She's a shooter. Solid groups at 100yds. The brake really cuts the felt recoil. Felt like the 30.06 at the range with the brake open.

    Yes! I just got a Tikka T3x in .308 Win. I have the scope mounted and zeroed it at 25 yds but I need to stretch it out!

    Nice! I've heard a lot of great things about the Tikkas, I've just never shot one. What scope are you running on it?

    I love it! I wanted to keep it low profile and light so I put on a Leupold VX-1 42 mm 3-9x duplex reticle.

    My tikka 270 put out .45 group at 100 with 52gr 4831sc and a 130gr Barnes ttsx. Good gun! Light under 9lb with bipod and 4-16 vortex pst with Badger ord rings.
