    Let's See Your Semi-Custom Tikka Builds

    Unless you have very specific requirements I’d definitely give the factory barrel a fair chance. My 7mag shoots 168gr Berger’s (HSM and Federal) really well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No Magnums

    I have a 7mag that I like quite a bit.... but it rarely gets shot. For the price, ease of shooting, and more quality shots in a day, I much prefer smaller calibers. 6.5CM and 223 primarily for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kimber Montana or Tikka T3x Superlite

    There’s a bunch of threads on both. I’ve been using Tikkas. No complaints here. They’re great just as they are, or you can go wild with them too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Leukotape is fantastic. Also used tincture of benzoin pre season to help toughen up soft spots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone run La Sportiva Trango Tower?

    I’ve been using Towers for a while. And the Trango Evo S for years before them. I love them honestly. They will slightly relax, but not much. But you have to remember their purpose as a lightweight, 3 season mountaineering boot. And they excel doing that. My old pair of reds (Trango Evo) had...

    Crispi customer service / warranty

    Glad they replaced them for you. I’ve had to return two pairs before their time and the customer service has been great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tikka accurizing for Tikka newbie

    Make sure your action screws are torqued properly. I used to use 40lbs on the rear and 35lbs on the front based on what was posted on the mountain tactical site. A few here have talked about going up to 60lbs with good results... I’m planning on giving that a try this week. Sent from my...

    Tikka build 6.5 Creed - short or long mags

    What gain are you looking for with magazines? I know mountain tactical made some but I haven’t ever tried them. I like the factory mags. No need to mess with them with anything factory 147 and under (I haven’t tried the 156 Bergers). I use the flush fit as well as the extended 5 rounder with...

    Kifaru Shape Charge, to belt or not

    I’ve used mine with and without. The belt is nice with heavier load, but not totally necessary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone use knee sleeves in the mountains?

    I used a sleeve last year.... but I had an a knee injury I was dealing with. The sleeve definitely helped descending steep and uneven terrain. But it was hot and made sweat build up, combined with dirt and grime it made me thankful to take it off whenever I could. My advice if your not...

    Nightforce ATACR 4-16 F1 or F2?

    Man... I tried to get a good pic of my 4-16 ATACR F1 (Mil-R) at 4x. But it’s tough with just a phone camera and no good way to mount things. That said I’ve found the reticle usable at 4x like others here have. I can read the reticle just fine on long open country or more wooded terrain. I carry...
