I have just bought a stainless tikka lite after some advise from some of you on here.
First of all, it's advertised as stainless but just looks as if it's plated, are they all like this?
Also it has 8" on the barrel, does this mean 1 in 8 twist rate?
If it does mean 1 in 8 does this mean it won't be as accurate with lighter bullets such as 40gr?
The barrel needs threading, so while I am getting this done it would be the best time to get the barrel to the correct length. I will mainly be shooting from a 4x4 with nightvision so the shorter the better but I don't want to spoil the rifle.
What length would you say would be the best for a small hunting rifle without loosing any performance in the rifle?
