    The custom Tikka 6.5x47 Lapua I built for F-Class and Long range hunting.

    Here is the rifle I am shooting F-Class with, hunting with, and for the most part using for general varmint here in Australia.

    When I move back to Fairbanks next year I am not sure if it will get sold or brought back (depends on export drama).

    But building it has been a good lesson.

    Tikka T3 stainless action (started life as a 30-06 Varmint, and I used it that way for F-Class for over 1400 rounds).

    Krieger 1 in 8, 27 inch long #7 contour barrel, chambered in 6.5x47.

    Manners T4 Tikka Stock with LOP adjustment system.

    Australian built bolt shroud and bolt handle HSS supply I think is the name.

    Tikkas are the primary rifles in Australia. And they have exceptional accuracy out of the box. I actually won quite a few local F-Class competitions with it before I put a new 6.5x47 Barrel on it.

    Nice gun!

    How do you deal with the Trijicon's limited internal adjustment? Are those rings or bases canted?

    I can dial on the target out to 1300 meters (our local range) no problem.

    I had thought of ordering a Spurh mount, but haven't needed the extra ring height yet.

    That is good. I have heard there is only 40 moa total travel, that would only give 20moa up from center. Have you found more in your scope?

    The biggest problem I have with it is the power isn't enough for what we are doing. Most folks are shooting March or Nightforce with 30x plus power high ends.

    I don't know if it is something I can export or not yet, and it should be worth $4500 here for resale. Just have to see when I leave.

    Sightron with the 10-50x60 would be a lot better. But I also hunt with this thing, and shoot tactical matches, and it works well for that.
