Not to worry,the t3x has a 10 shot clip thats makes up for,any short comeings that the shooter may have.

Of course,The same as it takes to be a consistant trophy hunter,thats exactly the point--The rifle standard issue,the bullets regular issue---Put this combo in the hands of a deadly human hunter--used the conditions he had to work with to maximun effect.an expert at concealment--judgeing distance--nerves of steel--the quarry shot back.He was fighting for his homeland.The man--not the rifle.I shot over 40 deer with an off the shelf savage in 243 cal,wounded very few.

??? nothing has been replaced on my rifle, only added because they do not come with sights or a rail even , and yes the butt plate is factory in the pic but I have since switched it out for an Anschutz hook and the sling replaced with a palm rest for 300 meter International shooting

Carried a Browning 30-06 for almost 30years now that was a good rifle-Dropped moose and caribou like rag dolls.180gr win lead tip bullets,the most effective.Weaver 4 power tip off mounts,for Quick tip off to iron sites when scope fogged up,during bad weather--The best killsa 32point Bull moose near Capehaden,and a fly in on the long range mountains,and a huge Caribou went down with one shot.

I guess you missed the 270 guy,who mentioned 30 yd shots--As long as were on the subject,i cart wheeled a running cow moose in thick brush at less than 30 yds, with a 12ga slug--right place right time,luck sometimes a factor when hunting.Another time,only about a mile from my house in the goulds,I met a young bull,about 20yds running towards me down a path,again dropped him with a 12 ga slug.

I get a kick out of your stories coyote. We can't all be Hemingways.

Was just kidding 're the Creedmoor. I know they're capable. I'd probably own one but I stepped up to a real cartridge, 25-06, plus I don't have enough Club Z points.

I hope you get a couple critters with your creedmoor
Im using the 147gr for my creed also
My load is using H4350 lapua brass and cc450 primers
Itís only running at 2611 FPS but sd of like 2 and es of 5 out of my bergara
Tikkas are nice but lack the availability of aftermarket parts
I threw a tt diamond on mine and itís a well under a half now rifle
But I think Iím just going to use my 6.5x284 for hunting this year again
I have a great load with the new 156gr Berger eol
And the 400 FPS advantage with the same accuracy is a no brainer

September 17 just next week--And for sure you are field ready.When that big buck comes into view,you will be confident that the bullet will hit exactly were you are aiming.Time on the range well spent.Unfortunately that is not the case for many hunters.Good luck.

Yes Iím well aware of the importance of range-time with your rifles. I own dozens of Tikka from the new T1X in a .17 up to the 338win. I do all my own reloading on all my centerfire rifles and love spending range time with them. My favorite would be my T3 Vermont in the 7mm I have rigged up as my 1,000 yard long ranger.
I just hope and pray that if Iím ever in a situation where I have a rogue gopher at 60 meter I can hold it together enough to make a one shot clean kill. Remember practice makes perfect...

Jim..

FYI.. Iím just funnin with ya coyoteman.. good luck this hunting season..

Good natured banter,and ribbing are part of the forum fun.Just for the record
I keep records for the farmers I shoot gophers for--The count for the past 5 years is 10800.The farmers,most likely dont know my name,theyrefer to me as the gopher man.mostly in the standard area.I once shot 20 gophers,wth 18 shots, two doubles.And on the southern shore once killed two moose with one shot,a calf was hidded behind the cow the 30-06 bullet,went thru and broke a leg,I was able to recover.You hunt long enough .these things happen. Remember use those shooting sticks,breath and squeeze.

you should stick to paper targets

Section 456 of The Criminal Code of Canada says: "Every one who (a) defaces a current coin, or (b) utters a current coin that has been defaced, is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction."

You remind me of another Coyote something or other that used to be on here. He also had a very exclusive club going,'cept his entry qualifications weren't quite as high. Got a two hundred yard Loonie to show us ?

coyoteman ... if you do a search in this forum for “coin shot challenge” you will see some dead toonies shot a few years ago. At 300m nobody took out a center but I thought the four consecutive hits with a 30-30 was pretty special.
