I currently have a Savage 10 BAS-K 308 with a low round count that I was trying to trade for a Tikka T3 Tactical in 308. When I was approached with an offer for a Remington 700 stainless 5R barrel in an HS stock with a SS 16x with $300. I really like the gun I have I just really like my Tikka in 300 WM so I figured I would like a heavy barreled version as well. This offer has me stumped. Plus I get to keep my monarch that is on my savage to sweeten the deal. Im just wondering if thats an even trade or if I would be coming out behind or ahead in your opinion?

The way its written it sounds like you should trade the browning on the howa if they will throw in the winchester but let you keep the scope on the marlin and the trigger from the savage. Whacko
 
However if I am understanting what you are asking  Whistling  you are considering  trading a Savage 10 BAS-K .308 with no scope  for a Remmington R5 mil Spec that has as 16x SS and you get $300.  Is that correct or does one of the tikka rifles have something to actually do with the trade?   (you loose 3 to 400)
 
Simple answer Keep what you have if you like what you have. 
 
In addition to what you have,  if you were originally after a Tikka T3 Tactical .308 then buy one rather than trade into it.   Both the T3 Tactical and  R5 are fine rifles but barrel length is much longer on the R5 and is does not come threaded but it is stainless so if you need to tone down the stainless for true tactical use you would have to cerakoat it etc.  The t3 Tactical also runs a detachable mag and to put detachable mag bottom metal on the R5 will set you back about $400 +

Im sorry for the confusion. The tikka tactical is what I want. The Remington is what somebody is offering me it has a 20 inch 5R stainless threaded barrel with a vltor brake. I know if it was straight across I would be losing on the deal but he offered an extra $300 cash.

I ended up taking the 5R trade. Plus he threw in a home built AR15. I feel pretty good about that trade. Plus I would rather have a Remington any day.
