    Tikka M658 .300 Win Mag (RH) - Zeiss - MAE T12 Mod - Brake - Load Data

    I may regret this but am hankering after something else

    Tikka 658 actioned 300 Win Mag (Wood and Blue)
    This model action is the precursor to the M695 long action and has an external bolt collar that locks into the receiver and creates an extremely smooth bolt throw
    15-17mm integral dovetail with front recoil pin notch
    3 shot single stack steel magazine
    Very nice factory adjustable trigger - currently set around 1.75-2lb pull

    Very nicely figured walnut stock with Rosewood fore-end
    Roll over cheek piece nice sized palm swell and Monte Carlo grip- regularly re-oiled and hand rubbed with Phillips Walnut Preparation - Shows usual signs of use, few scratches/little dings/marks in chequering
    QR slings studs - front is through bolt version
    Upgraded Pachmayer White Line Recoil pad - The tikka pad was horrible!

    Sporter profile Barrel Screwcut 14x1 with discreet/smooth thread protector (J Russell)
    shows usual signs of reflex moderator blue removal, easily sorted if required
    Barrel approx 1-1.5" shorter than OEM due to removal or previous 1/2" thread and recrowning (J Russell)

    Rifle only - 625

    Also Available

    1) 14x1 Custom Muzzle Brake - Timed to vertical on this barrel with no crush washer required - Steel 3 vent 45 deg rear angle, 8mm bore - very effective recoil reducer and "range neighbour annoyer" 55

    2) Brand New PES/MAE T12 reflex moderator - rear bush sized for this rifle
    Rated and stamped for 300 Weatherby Magnum 165

    3) approx 220x 208gr AMax - 90 (Don't even think about asking if I will sell these first! Rifle buyer gets first dibs)

    4) Approx 80x 180gr Remington Corelokt and enough Remington Powder to reload (data provided) - 60

    4) 100 once fired Norma cases - bought new at 115 from Spud not too long ago, only ever neck sized, higher volume case than most brands (i.e. lower pressure) will last longer than most. - 70 (as above)

    5) Approx 2.25lbs of Hodgson H1000 - 80 (as above)

    6) New Zeiss Conquest - 4.5-14x50 Z Plex Target Turrets - boxed papers, covers etc - 525 (as above)

    7) Tikka OEM Steel 1" medium rings - perfect 0.5mm barrel clearance with this scope/rifle for a excellent cheek weld 28

    Will offer combined price for all or some of the above on request
    RFD to RFD at buyers cost
    Can be viewed in Edinburgh, Borders and depedning on schedule North East/Northumberland, Ayrshire etc

    Load data available for:
    180gr Lapua Mega
    180gr Remington Corelokt
    208gr Hornady Amax
    All loads for accuracy at moderate MV and Pressure

    It shoots very well with IMR and H4831, N160 and latterly H1000 - Significantly under MOA - capable of 0.2 MOA if not less

    Initial load testing write up:
    300WM 208gr AMax result

    I shot this at 130yds off bipod and rear bag at Carfraemill 2 weeks ago - 208gr AMax 5 shots

    Big stags, Boar, Plains Game, Hoodie crows.
    Buy this and deal with them with supreme confidence....Hoodie crows really don't like them!
