So I am pretty close to wrapping up my 2 AR projects and am considering another money pit in the form of a bolt gun. I have neither the tools not the skills to actually build one, so aside from some basinc accessories it needs to run out of the box. I would like for it to be 308 since I have some experience with the round and have dies some brass.... The majority of the time spent behind it will be at a range punching paper, but I would like to be abel to get out in the field with it and go after hogs and deer. We are talking maybe 80/20 range/field at best probably closer to 90/10. While I have owned some heavy barrel varmint/tactical rigs and enjoyed shooting them at a range or in a supported environment, I am not vain enough to pretend that humping a 14#+ rifle around the field will do anything but give me a heart attack I have fondled a Tikka T3 that felt very good in the hand and I am told they are VERY good shooters, so shooting for groups at the range would not be a frustrating experience. Any other suggestions aside form getting a varmint rig and gym membership.
