Those Kimber's are really nice. in either of the rounds you mention, it would last him a lifetime. Bill K

(But CZ puts out some nice rifles also, in some of the same calibers.)

I just recently purchased a Tikka T3x Superlite iin 243 Win and worked up a load for it using the Barnes 80 gr TTSX bullet. I am very impressed with this rifle and would suggest taking a look at it.

This is the first 243 Win I have owned and I think it is a wonderful crossover caliber that can be used from deer size game on down through varmints.

Everyone talks about how accurate they are. I had a Tikka 595 .17 Remington and sold it like a fool because it was a ten twist, Does this rifle allow you to unload it with the safety on ( like a three position)? Is it a dropbox mag or a floorplate?

Don't sleep on a CZ550 .308 or .30-06 or even 6.5x55. Very nice rifles and certainly classic. I know rhey aren't produced anymore but can find them places.

When you have a shell in the chamber and the safety on, the bolt is locked. It is a two position safety. So, the shell cannot be ejected with the safety engaged.

I has a detachable magazine which holds three rounds.

Since I bought my CZ 527 in 17 Rem and then this Tikka T3x, which both have detachable magazines, I am really starting to like them. Having mostly Remington 700's my whole life with the steel floorplate I was not sure how I would like them but having rifles now with the detachable magazine, I am enjoying them.
