How good is the Tikka T3 out of the box?
« on: April 15, 2012, 01:19:53 PM »
This is my cousins kid, he's only 14 and just started shooting large caliber.

Tikka T3 in .270, factory loads Remington Express Core Lokt 150 GR PSP, off the bench of course.

200 yards 3 shot group. Those are .22 casings in the holes BTW

I love my Tikka T3 in 270 wsm.  Shot it yesterday for the first time since November and the first 3 shots were in the same hole at 100 yards.  I love that gun! LOL  I am using the winchester 130gr ballistic silvertips and have had great success with them over the years.

I sure enjoy my T3 lite ss 22-250. No complaints. Very nice rifles for the price.

I have one in 300 WSM and it has been a good shooter as well, I just don't like the magazine capacity.
