    Good luck with that.

    One of the lads here had a Tikka 222 at a reasonable costs. Do a search for it.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Don't waste your time looking for a Sako A2- wrong boltface, wrong action length. You need an A1 or L461.

    get the sako a1 or L461 if you can. it will feed from the mag no problem then. its also very small action compared to the m595 I had mine built on.

    so ideal if you want to keep weight down etc...

    here is the one had done on the tikka m595 action. its like a hmr to shoot and around the same sound level . but alot better ftlb as you know. average of 4033fps from the 20 grain vmax makes it pretty flat shooting also got more load work yet though to do

    My local dealer had both a Sako A1 and a Tikka 595 in .223 and .222 respectively a couple of weeks back. If you want his contact details, pm me and you can speak to him direct. Both looked in pretty good nick though, so may not be what you are after.
