I have a tikka t3 lite in .243. It's a very accurate rifle, and very well built. I don't own a Remington, so I won't speak of their quality, but the tikka is a great rifle
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. -Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book"
