I dont normally upgrade my rifles but I would like to upgrade my current T3 300 WSM. Looking for recommendations of what to do.

Definitely want to replace the plastic etc. Looking for any and all suggestions.

Sterk shroud and bolt. Personally I really like the AI style bolt.

Stock of your choice. Hard to go wrong with manners. Otherwise picknthe chasisnyou prefer

Timney 2 stage trigger

And go

Tikka Performance has some nice bottom metal/magazine options, and some nice bolt shrouds as well. They offer bolt handles too, but do not offer a swept (angled) version, which I prefer; I go to Glades Armory for those (be aware that some folks have had some bad experiences with Glades customer service, but I have never had any problems). Other than that, a YoDave or Tikka Performance trigger spring, and you should be good to go!

When you wear out that 300 WM barrel, you might think about going 300 PRC, as it's a shorter/fatter case which will let you run the heavier 30-caliber projectiles without intruding (as much) on powder capacity. There are a couple of barrel nut systems available for Tikkas now (Patriot Valley Arms, Southern Precision Rifles/Bugholes), so you can get a barrel, get a headspace gauge, and install your own barrel (saving you time and a few dollars).

I have two Tikkas with a third in the works. Love 'em.

My only rifle is a Tikka. I am really enjoying my new KRG Bravo stock, and the Sterk bolt handle is officially ballin’ out of control.

I upgrade the stock on mine to a Manners PRS1 with mini chassis, Sterk bolt and shroud, had a mountain Tactical 20 MOA rail as well.

It’s a great set up for me although I did have a KRG Bravo that I really liked as well.
