    You ought to buy a couple extra mags. PB has one that we suspect is fussy at feeding, but I orderd the single feed follower for long loads to run in that one yesterday. I don't think there's any alternate mag options.

    I donít think there are other options for the mags. You are stuck with Tikka mags which I really wish it was AICS Mags. Like Mark said, one mag didnít feed for shit and I was freaking out thinking it was the gun. But I had one bad mag.

    The US Optics level can be bought on Amazon or Brownells and they come with folder version or not. I like the folder. They fit right in the pic rail. Cost $100 or so. Kinda pricy much cheaper options but I like them.

    I bought the rail for bipod from Triad tactical which you need to be a little handy to instal which Iím not. Or you can run a Harris or no bipod at all.

I'll keep ya posted and be working on some loads myself.
    Are you on their Mil/LE program? I have discounts on all the scopes whenever I log into their website. Some are more than others.

    The Mk5, NX8, and the 3-18 Razor can all be had for around 1400-1800 bucks.

    Hey PB, yea I think you are correct, what threw me off is that if you put it in a KRG or MDT Chassie then it will take the AICS mags. I assume it will shoot similarly to yours & the stock really seems pretty decent, will really tell once I get to the range. I have a KRG and really like it I like the looks and feel compared to the factory 5R stock, like I say I will see how the Tikka rolls. Thanks for the info on the Level, didn't get one yet but will look around.

    C-grunt thanks for the reminder & yes I am a Mil/Vet discount guy on EuroOptics, those guys are awesome and have some of the best scope prices even without Mil discounts. Thanks guys for all the info.
