Not a bad choice. Jump on one now if you can. The prices are going up. The rifles that were selling for $400 4 to 5 years ago are now worth more. They are one rifle Brand that has actually increased in value over the past 8 or so years. I love the Hunter version. I cannot stand the plastic stocked Tikka's. You may also want to go and hold one and shoulder it. I do not like that the bolt locks when the safety is on. Other than that, I love mine.

Other rifles I would take a gander at would be a CZ , Browning Abolt, Ruger Hawkeye, Winchester Model 70, and Howa. The CZ would be at the top of my list with the Winchester Model 70 in second.

I have a bunch of different bolt guns:
2 Sakos (.222, .243)
2 Kimbers(270WSM, 308)
2 model 70s(264 WinMag, 30-06)
and a Ruger Hawkeye in .358 Win.

You couldn't talk me out of any of them, and I would recommend any of them.

Several good choices have been mentioned. My recommendation would be the Ruger Hawkeye in .308-30/06 if you must. It is the best otc 'real rifle' currently manufactured IMO. My next choice would be a M70 I reckon. The Tikkas are nice, smoothe, and accurate but have a bit too much plastic for a classic rifle. PH

A lot of people talk about the plastic on tikka t3 but a gun to shoot that good right out of the box is awesome. They are tack drivers
