I love my Win mod 70 30-06 but I needed to lighten up for my goat hunt this fall. The boss on it not only added a little weight but added length too. So I picked up a Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in 300 win mag this week. I put a limbsaver recoil pad on it to help offset the kick as per a recommendation from this board. I have a Leupold VX-I 4-12-40 to mount on it. I got the Talley one piece rings to mount my scope but I ordered the mediums and I feel they are too high. I have already ordered the lows to see how they fit. If you are looking for rings for a tikka, let me know.
I can't wait to get out and shoot it!
