I have a rem 700 bdl in the 22-250 and love it. But I had heard that the tikka was a tack driver so I wanted some first hand feedback. I don't really want to dink around with the gun, so the tikka sounds like my best option right now. Thank you for the tip about the "Hunter" in Wisconsin. I will keep my eyes open for one in Idaho now or I'll have the local gun shop order one for me.
