This is a great forum here. I've been lurking for quite some time and am getting ready to jump into the bolt-action world after shooting semi for 10 years. I'll admit up front right now I'm a noob when it comes to long range shooting, but I wish to jump into it. The farthest I've shot accurately was 450 yards with a 20" AR so I know there is lots of room for me to improve on. I'm trying to decide between a Tikka T3 Lite and Tikka T3 Superlite (Fluted barrel) that my local Sportsmans Warehouse has in stock. Both in 30-06, as I've got Garands that shoot it and I'm planning on re-barreling it later when I can improve my skills enough to take use of a new barrel. The Superlite is $70 more, but that is not a huge deal to me ($699 vs $629) if it makes a difference. Any opinions on which route to take? Eventually I would like to put it in a better stock and such, but not until I learn the basics first.
