So I've decided on a Tikka but due to the weight of 6.5 lbs I'm starting to reconsider the 30 06 caliber.

Has anybody shot or owns a Tikka T3 in 30 06?

I don't but is it wood stock or synthetic? Wood should be fine but their synthetic stocks seem like flimsy junk to me and are very light so you'd definitely feel it. I looked at them last year and was impressed by how smooth the bolt was.

if you were closer you could shoot mine... mine is the T3 lite in 30-06... I put a new recoil pad on it..... However, I do not think the recoil is bad at all. I certianly have had other guns in simular cals that have kicked worse
