        I believe you will still require a smith to get that puppy off, unlike the Ruger Precision

            I just picked one of these up. What ammo are you shooting? I have yet to buy brass, bullets, and dies.

            • I have a Tikka CTR in 6.5 creedmore and just put it in a MDT HS3 chassis.It came with a mdt 5 rnd plastic mag that does not allow me to load long enough length to get back to my sweet spot.What other mag choices do I have or what specific brand mag will fit in my chassis allowing longer bullet length.

              • according to the mdt website

                The HS3 chassis uses AICS style magazine in .223 and .308 caliber for short action systems, and 300WM, 30.06 or .338LM for long action systems. Note that the magazine well for Long Action has the 3.715 lengths, and therefore you need AICS magazine in 3.715.

                AICS, Alpha 2, and ARC should work, both the alpha 2 and ARC mags have longer internal dimensions

                  You need to read a little further in long actions:

                  Our chassis use 3.715 magazines for all models, except Tikka T3 which uses the 3.560 magazines.

                  • Okay, so 3.560" then. Since the poster in question wants longer length for his 6.5 creed, I suspect that even 3.000" would be plenty. Or did I miss something?

                      Lash,

                      You did not miss a thing. I only wanted to point out since this is an exclusive T3 thread, that long action T3's in MDT chassis only use MDT special proprietary 3.560" LA mags and not AICS LA Mags 3.715". And yes, the OP is looking for longer mags for a SA T3, which Alpha Mags, ARC and Accurate Mags make.

                          What's the barrel length on the shorty 308 and what scope is that?

                                  You can screw on whatever knob you want end. I put an APA knob on mine....https://www.americanprecisionarms.co...apa-bolt-knob/.

                                  • I don't actually make the entire knob I modify and thread the factory knob. Mine are actually threaded and capped with 416SS ends and then machined to final finish. Makes for a sleeker, cleaner looking knob I think. I got tired of all the big gawky gear shifter knob that everybody is selling. I mean, come on, we're cycle a silky smooth Tikka bolt; not shifting a truck transmission. Just my two cents and personal taste. I only make mine out of the factory bent knobs. IMG_1135.JPG

                                    • I find the factory Tikka handles to have a bit too much 'slop' for my liking though in regards to fitment. Hence why I CNC my own styles from scratch. Cerakote can 'gap fill' to an extent. Im talking small gaps..

                                      Nice work though, and nice rig. Burris scope good?

                                          So 5/16 UNF is the same as 5/16-24?

                                            Hand loads. Lapua virgin brass, 140 Berger Hybrids, CCI BR primers, and 43.6 grains of H4350. This load averages 2683 in my rifle and is a hammer. Its strange but the load only shoots .6 or so at 100 but will shoot 1 inch at 300.

                                              Correct. 5/16" UNF will be 24tpi (teeth per inch).

                                                Well that is good news. I'll pick up Atlasworxs knob bolt and a Hawk Hill bolt knob and it'll be cheaper than having the factory bolt knob threaded.

                                                • Is anyone else enjoying their CTR as purchased, without modifications? My only nit-picking-point may be having a vertical grip closer that allows better prone shooting, but this angle may be a better option for using "obstacles". I don't think I'll be doing any modifications or stock/part swapping for a long time, it seems to be pretty much setup in a great way for me.

                                                  • I kept mine stock for 2 years and then I decided I really wanted the McRees G10. I think it was a great upgrade that made the rifle a little more consistent in accuracy, not that it was ever bad. I just wanted something more solid and ergonomic in the prone position.
