    If this is the rifle I think it is, it represents a steal for someone. As described, it is extremely accurate, particularly with 120 gn NBTs. Good luck with the sale.

    how old is the rifle please?

    are you the first owner?

    approx. round count?

    all the best

    Thanks Tikka, am I right in thinking that you were the original owner of the rifle?
    As you say it is devastatingly accurate especially with 120 grain projectiles.

    Hi Moses
    Not the original owner as you can gather from the above, I could only guess at the round count but I can reassure anyone by saying that the barrel is in very good condition. When it went for cerakoting a couple of months ago the bore was inspected and found to be fine.
    Tikka 260 may be able to tell you how old the rifle is as I'm not exactly sure?

    can you do a picture of the whole rifle please.

    I believe that this the rifle built for me by Steve Kershaw in early 2008 ...... it did everything , and more than it was supposed to do. The loads that I ended up with were 120 Gn NBT, over RL22 @ 49.0 Gns, Federal GM210M primers in Lapua brass. COAL 2.366 - measured to the ogive with a Sinclair comparator, Gave me a mean 2836 fps MV with 13 fps spread. Not HOT, but all I will say is that it also gave much less than .5 MOA on paper all day and every day, and Fallow hated it. Of course, I have no idea of current round count, but with a LW barrel, I can't imagine that it has deteriorated very much in the intervening time.

    Good luck again with the sale, and good fortune to who ever grabs it.
