Hi, I have just joined the site so bear with me if this ends up in the wrong place
I am looking into picking up a .270 fairly soon,(got my cert. for the gun and mod already) and was just wondering if I could get some advice as there seems to be loads of good info. on this site!
My first choice rifle was going to be a tikka T3 hunter and a second choice was a CZ 550. I'm not sure what the normal cost of each is? but I know the CZ will be cheaper. Which one would you guys recommend? Better shooter ect? I've read that there is too much plastic on the tikka for the price but I could live with that if it's a much better gun. Also, would the CZ realistically need a timney trigger kit to shoot well?
I am looking to put a S&B 8X56 on the rifle? What's a normal price for them? And your preferred recticle?...Illuminated? I have a leupold 6.5-20X40 atm so I am considering keeping this for the time being but not sure...
And finally for a moderator. I was looking at one of the ASE Compact mods but I hear the are fairly expensive? How do you guys find them?
Sorry for such a long winded question but I am going to keep this as my only centerfire,(so it will be taken foxing when needed) and I just want to get the set up right first time so that it will last me.
Many thanks for reading and any replies will be greatly appreciated!
