I have a buddy looking for a left handed 300 wm for less than a grand. Any ideas, or rifles sitting in gun cabinet?
The new Tikkas in 300 WM are 1 in 10”. They still have the mag length issue which isn’t an issue if you shoot SAAMI length ammo. Also, I am sure a Tikka in 300 WM would kick like a mule due to the relatively light weight.I have a left handed Tikka 300 win. It shoots well, around 2" at 300 yards with reloads. For under a grand, Tikka and higher grade savage is about it.
I have 2 minor issues with the Tikka.
1- 1 in 11" twist
2- Factory mag limits you to factory length ammo.
I hope he can handle recoil well if he goes Tikka, I'm not recoil sensitive and it kicks hard. I put a brake on mine so I could enjoy shooting it prone.
