I have just got back from a stalking trip to Scotland and it was mainly woodland stalking. I found that the barrel on my current rifle is to long for walking through the trees without beating it to death.
How short can you take a 6.5 x 55 barrel and it still work?? I was thinking of getting a Tikka T3 and getting it cut down and have it as a rifle where scratches and the odd mark are just character!!
