Glad to get some quick responses. Definitely helped me out. I looked at the
Tikka T3 Hunter fluted stainless barrel. and Im really liking it. One question
reguarding the barrel. From what ive gathered, all wooden stocks are free
floating, but does anyone know if the fluted barrels are free floating as well?
Im guessing they are, & is a fluted barrel necessary for hunting? Im really
considering going with the 270. Sounds like it kill everything i listed before well
with less recoil & a flatter trajectory. Ill definitely go to some lgs, and pawn
shops & see what they have, plus it will be nice to actually handle the gun
and make sure it fits me and im comfortable with it.
Ive checked out these models and they all seem to have great reviews.
