    I've been looking for a good long range rifle (Our new range is opening a 1000yd lane at the new location) And I have been looking to find/build a rifle that will suffice for some great target shooting.

    So with my pop's shoulder operation he can no longer handle his 300 win mag he bought last year. he went out and purchased a 300 win short mag Tikka T3...

    long story short, I've now taken into my possession his "old" Weatherby mark v chambered in 300 winmag with a kahles helia C scope

    He can't handle 300 win mag recoil so he went out and bought a 300 short mag? The fuck?

    No, it should be about the same. I also don't think I'd want any Tikka in a magnum caliber, my friend had a stainless/synthetic .300 win mag and it was ungodly to shoot; he actually sold it because of the recoil.

    he dialed it in at 165 gr....

    and the tikka was customized with some super squishy butt pad, it's pretty pimp, I'll snag a couple pics...this thread is a bit worthless without them...

    .300 Win. Mag. 165 3.140 3,615
    .300 Win. Short Mag. 165 3,130 3,590

    Could he not have fitted a butt pad on his original rifle? I think he just wanted an excuse to buy a new rifle :rofl:

    Depending on the weights of the rifles, stock design, and so on, the Tikka might actually be worse recoil wise :o


    edit: but that muzzlebrake will help :rofl:

    above and beyond hearing protection? or are you directing more towards the idea firing in the field?

    firing in the field, I always use hearing protection unless I'm hunting.

    I've given up hunting, so for my use it will only aid in punching paper...

    though my custom molded plugs are looking a little worse for wear.
