A good friend on mine bought a Tikka in the 7mm08 caliber last summer. It's a well built gun at a value price and it shot exceptionally well. He harvested several deer with it. I shot it also and my only 'compalint' if I could call it that would be that the magazine was plastic and seemed a little cheap. I'm used to Remington's with metal mags. I thought it was a very good gun. It's a great whitetail caliber. He loves it.
