They get great reviews I know several people who shoot em and swear by em. I dont like the feel of em and the palstic clips. I am old school biased however. I have seen some impressive groups out of em and they are a good buy for the money.

I prefer true Mauser 94-98 models, and Winchester model 70 knock offs of mausers in a pinch, but here is the link.

I own three, 338 fed, 7mm-08 and a 308. They all shoot close to a Remmington new out of box.  The 7mm-08 interestingly enough was the most finicky, didn't care for Federal Factory. Having test loaded multiple reloads, each rifle has demonstrated its own preference for one recipe or another. All three are giving me .75 MOA or less with reloads at 100yards.

Those who haven't tried the 338 Fed round should check into it. Awesome for deer, bear, hogs, elk or moose within 300 yards.

rough rider,alot of people who dont reload dont know how versatile a 338 mag can be,even for deer.being able to load 160 gr pills at near 3200 fps make it a great lomg range weapon,with much more energy than the popular 7mag because of bullett diameter.

Please review my post, I am referring to the 338 Federal Cartridge which is a 308 necked up to a 338 bullet. It is not the 338 Win. Mag which is indeed a fine cartridge.

Tikka T3 Lite in 300WSM.  Love IT!  Remember, it's made on the same line as the Sako... It's a working gun for me so I realy like the composite stock vs. nice wood I'd be worried about scratching...  First time I took it into the field I shot a 9 pointer.
