Purchased a new SAKO Tikka Continental heavy barrel 22-250 today. Now need a scope. Am seriously considering the Weaver V24 Varmint scope-any comments/recommendations? Also, I had to call Beretta HQ in Maryland about differences in the 2002 and 2003 Tikka models-their number is: 1-301-283-2191. I'm sure most already know the number, but for the few who might need it, hope it helps. I was very impressed by their technical department-they took the time to fully explain the new magazine system for the T3 as it relates to the Continental. Ended the day by holding a matched pair of SAKO Collector Club lever action beauties-serial numbers 125/175! Allen J. Light Freedom is not free. Thank a Veteran today!
