I have an X Bolt in .308, very happy with it.

Nothing wrong with a Tikka.

Same barrel as I was referring to, mine was a Hunter Varmint.

Wally,
Was checking out the Threads today and found your Tikka thread. I just got one today at an estate auction in 270. It is the Camo Stainless Barrel model. Like new for $475.00. I had a new Simmons 6.5X20 Scope setting around and mounted it this afternoon. As all have stated the action is smooth. Sure I would love to have a SAKO but parting with $1600-$1900 is a little too much. $475 or $600 sounds a lot better. Tomorrow I am going to adjust the trigger down to around 3 lbs which I prefer. It is very simple to do as obviously it is well designed as the SAKOs are as well. After working with it this afternoon I think you would be more than satisfied with the Tikka T-3. I probably would have preferred a 308 or 30-06 only my preference with little experience with the 270. But the 270 Win. has stood the test of time also!

Maybe an old thread but Dont over look an Abolt! wood or plastic both got that Abolt feel.. try before you buy but if you like the feel you'l love the rifle!

i have one in 300wsm an put a friend onto a Wood .270 he loves it.

triggers need spring cut or a new one but other than that good to go.

Just found a stainless a-bolt 30 06 with boss for about 600 new, what do you think about the a-bolts and how well does the boss work it had both the ported and solid weights?

A bolts are solid performers. Not personally familiar with the BOSS system other than the ports make hearing protection doubly important for the shooter.

Browning still makes excellent firearms.

I have an A Bolt. It replaced the Tikka Varmint. I like the hinged "never lost" mag and the top tang safety.

I would not hesitate buying one. One of my friends has Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in 270 WSM. It's good.
