  1. That’s going to be first on my list. Thanks again everyone for your help!
  2. I zeroed it yesterday, as it was, and I got a group of .572 at 200. Wondering if I can run it like this for the hunt this weekend, or will I be doing something detrimental to the rifle. and I think you nailed it on the head because it took forever to zero because I was WAY high.
  3. Thanks, I’ll check that because I did install the MCARBO spring. Assuming that’s it, if left as it is for the time being, is it safe to operate? My hunt is this weekend and I do not have the time to go and re-zero the rifle.
  4. Good morning/afternoon, My magazines are difficult to seat unless I’m putting pressure on the forward end of the bottom of the magazine. Also, the magazine will not drop free and feels “jammed” in there. I have to put downward pressure via the breach in order to pop it out. This happens with the original magazine and two new Tikka magazines as well. Anyone experience this? I’ve had zero feeding issues

    Tikka T3x vs Bergara B14 HMR

    For anyone who followed this and was interested, I purchased the Tikka T3X Stainless in 300 Win Mag. It finally ended up coming in stock, so the decision to go with my original choice was easy. I instantly added the MCARBO trigger spring, and man did it make a difference. Thanks all all for the opinions.

    Colt suspends production of AR-15 for civilian market

    I can't say that I am too surprised. Colt has been in a precarious position for nearly 20 years now (as far as civilian sales go). Their standard ARs don't differentiate themselves from other manufacturers. They launched their retro series (at $2500 a gun). Those haven't sold well at all - especially with Troy and Brownells selling retro rifles of equal quality for under $1K. For 2019, Colt started roll marking their carbines as M4s. My buddy went to buy one, but couldn't find any. Everyone still had guns in stock from 2016-2018. That means that those with the new rollmark are at distributors....sitting.
  8. What’s the status on the availability of these items? If available, I’ll take the harness and tripod.

  12. I apologize for this type of thread since I know they appear often, but I’m a bit out of my element. I understand this is more of an apples to oranges type question, nonetheless this seems to be my conundrum. Price here is not an issue as I’m blessed to have the contacts where I get either for about the same price. I am however looking to fill a western hunting rifle role with whatever I choose. I was pretty firm on the Tikka, but it’s been difficult to attain since the cartridge I desire hasn’t been in stock dang near anywhere. My concerns here is the weight and value. I’ve acquired a scope that’s already at approximately 2lbs, and the Bergara is 2.5 lbs or so more than the tikka. I may be splitting hairs and over complicating the issue, but I prefer to buy once and not go through what I consider the hassle of flipping a hunting rifle later on. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the input, I’ll keep it in mind when scouting.

    I feel I have a respectable budget, but starting from near no equipment it complicates things a bit. I was hoping to prioritize as best I could, then get more etc near year. I was planning on picking up a pair of Razor 10x42’s, a 300 winmag with either a vortex Or Leupold 4x16, and a pair of hunting boots (Schnee’s and Crispi’s have my attention). Haven't considered a tripod.

    Nope. Doing all the research I can now. I also need to figure out the priority of equipment/gear I need to source, I.E. binoculars, boots, camo etc, all of which I don’t have but can purchase or borrow.
