Tikkas are a smooth as silk, Grey_Wolf. I love mine and its 1/2 MOA if I get the loads optimized.

Oh I know! I bought my son one for his 18th birthday, it was his first rifle. Took him to the gun store and told him to pick up as many guns as he could to shoulder and get a feel for and we'd get the one that felt the best. He picked the Tikka.

what I was TRYING to get at is be realistic and dont get sucked in by the hype...at the end of the day is pretty much a 6.5x55mm give or take a little bit.

Ah Ok. Nope not getting sucked in. determined to be a 6.5 whether a 6.5x55, 260 Rem or 6.5 Creedmoor I guess doesn't make that much difference just a non magnum cartridge. The first two were on the list because I know they have low recoil, wasn't sure about the Creemoor. Any of those should fit the bill for intended use. truthfully I had originally thought about the 6.5x55 because I had one and it was very easy on the shoulder but then started thinking that maybe the 260 would be better cause it's a short action, then someone brought up the Creedmoor and it's a short action, and round and round we go lol, And just haven't known anyone that shot one so I asked and maybe derailed this thread - oops Embarassed sorry op.

For when I need to make a hole in something WAAYYY over there... Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor w/ Burris Veracity 3-15 x 50mm. Haven't even had a chance to shoot it yet. I doubt it will see much hunting, unless I try it for varmints somewhere.
