Love my new Tika 270 WSM. I also own a 308 Norma Magnum. It's tough to get shells for unless you hand load. It was the first short action Magnum in 1967. It belonged to my Dad who was a guide, and avid hunter and is in the record books several times. I shoot 180 gr bullet and 4831 powder. I has an older Weaver scope on it but works fine.
In the photo is a Sako Model 75 Stainless with a wood stock, a rare configuration. Sako is the same company that makes the Tika. The company offerings in Sako or Tika are of the finest quality.
Both of these rifles are capable of shoot sub MOA right out of the box. With a little fine tuning these rifles are deadly accurate. I know of several people who have used these brand for competitive hunting rifle matches.
MOA = Minute of angle, in simple terms this means the rifle can maintain a 1" group at 100 yards, 2" group at 200 yards and 3" group at 300 yards. These values are not exact, but close enough for most shooters to understand.
