    The Tikka T3x and CVA Cascade are both great options for a reliable and accurate rifle at a reasonable price point. The Tikka T3x is known for its smooth action and crisp trigger, while the CVA Cascade offers a great value for its accuracy and features. Both rifles have a good reputation for quality and reliability. The TC Compass and Venture are also good options, but may not have the same level of refinement as the Tikka or CVA. The Ruger American is a solid choice for an affordable truck gun, but may not have the same level of accuracy as some of the other options. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and what features are most important to you. A Leupold or Vortex scope will pair well with any of these rifles.

    Tika’s are fantastic and are far superior than their price point.

    Of the rifles you’ve listed I would choose the tika.

    Can’t go wrong with HOWA , I own the 22.250 and the 6.5 bleedmoor and they never disappoint

  • RKE 🏕️'s avatar

    @Skulldragger agreed on the Howa’s performance. They would be my #2 on the list.

    I’ve never shot a tika or I’d probably own one, I hear good things about um

    Don’t know anything about the Tikka or CVA but I own a Ruger American Ranch in 350 Legend and I love it. It has a short barrel and makes it easy to handle in a truck or in the woods.

    @Skulldragger I had a Howa 1500 in 308. Was an absolute tack driver with hand loaded Sierra Gamekings. I just didn’t like the wider fore end. No opposition at all to a Howa.

    @Craig Ruger American is on the list. However from what I’ve read you want a 22” or longer barrel for accuracy. So that would put the shorter barrels out. I may be wrong on that so I am definitely up for suggestions from everyone. In the research stage now.

  • Danny's avatar

    @Coyote I am leaning that way. Still have some research to do. I think I can get my hands on a Tika to look at. Not going to rush my decision but I’m pretty convinced on a 22-250

  • Coyote's avatar

    I want to change from 223 to 204.

  • Danny's avatar

    @Coyote Heard good things about the 204. Both 204 and 22-250 are flatter than 223.

  • Skulldragger's avatar

    @Danny I hear that, mine are on bipods and I shoot off a Caldwell field pod or I lay on the ground to shoot so the that doesn’t come into play for me.

  • Coyote's avatar

    Before you buy one make sure you can find ammo for it. It has been hard to get in my area. I went with a .243 instead.

  • Danny's avatar

    @Coyote I have been checking and right now Midway USA has a few options in stock. I know that can change at any time though.

  • Nate's avatar

    Everyone I’ve ever known to own a Ruger American, in any caliber says they’re tack drivers. They sure feel cheap but man do they shoot.
