I'm looking for a rifle for shooting Fallow in big open fields and was thinking of getting a 270. Because I like my rifles Finnish, I was thinking of getting a Tikka T3 Varmint. It would have a the secondary purpose of using it up in Scotland some day so would need to be carried long distances. I'm pretty lightly built so I was thinking the weight of a varmint barrel would tame the recoil somewhat. I had a look at a Tikka Varmint the other day and was impressed with the balance and it didn't feel to heavy.
Any opinions on the pros and cons of this would be of interest.
