    and 28" Pac Nor 8T barrel..along with Choate Varminter stock..glass is Bushnell 6500 Tactical 4-30x50 mounted in Burris 30mm Signature rings...

    weighs 18# so it is not a carry carry gun....I let the bullet do the walking for me...142 gr Sierra or 140 Nosler or Berger all shoot very well......

    ive owned a bunch of bolt action rifles but I think the tikka has the smoothest action of any of the bolt guns I've owned. This 6.5 swede is my first tikka but it won't be my last.

    Yes I'm a 6.5 swede fan myself, but ended up with it's little brother 260 rem. The 6.5 swede needs a long action which is not a problem, it's probably one of the most overlooked underrated cartridges for medium game along with the 260 rem. Just an outstanding cartridge and I love the 6.5mm bullet it's the perfect caliber in my opinion and from my experience what should hold the place of the many 6mm hunting rifle (not a bash to those 6mm fans)

    I know everyone thinks John Browning invented the firearm and I gotta admit, what I like about most guns came from his noodle but when it comes to making guns that totally make sense, those Northern Euros don't take a back seat to anybody. Unlike a truckload of American guns, I've never owned a Finnish or those parts, gun, that I couldn't get to shoot great and those dudes love the 6.5x55 Swede. They gave Hitler hell. I think I'll just go around them.
