    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.
