    Let's assume the chambering is settled. Is she dead set on a bolt action? Is there any chance she might like a pump?

    .270 is a great round and the Tika is a solid gun. They tend to be light which she might like but it can also result in a heavier recoil. Good luck and happy hunting

    She's dead set on Bolt Action. I think I have her talked into Tika but she really like the Savage trigger.

    Savage makes fine, economy rifles.

    You don't have to buy some custom job to get the job done with aplomb, grace and great accuracy.

    Hear Savage is hard to beat. For skinny little old Texas white tails a .22-250 works great and dont kick at all.

    I am giving serious thought to my purchasing a 6.5 Creedmoor upper for my AR. It obviously can turn out to be very accurate and from my estimation, livable recoil. I have hunted with the AR but it reminded me at times what I learned in 'Nam, high velocity and small caliber hitting a twig, current trajectory will or can be greatly altered. Higher mass works best for this. I am wondering if anyone has converted their AR from .223 and what 6.5 Creedmoor they purchased (details please) to use on the AR lower. I like a 1-shot quick kill (I am a meat hunter, not trophy).

    A 6.5 Creedmoor upper is AR-10 sized, not AR-15. A 6.5 Grendel upper will fit and it's a legitimate hunting round.
