Tikka T3 accuracy???

Has anybody got any insight on the Tikka T3 rifles? I am considering the Laminated Stainless, or the Varmint model.....either in 260 rem. or 25-06.

My Tikka Varmint rifles, a .223 S/S & a .308 in a XLR chassis are tac-drivers. The new chassis changed the .308 from a sub MOA to almost a one-holer!
The actions on both rifles are butter smooth.

Re: Tikka T3 accuracy???

I have a T3 light in 300 win. It took a couple tries to find a load it liked heavier bullets than expected after I found a bullet it liked it shoots well under moa. I don't want to say exact group size as it was small enough for three seperate groups fired by me and a friend that really impressed both of us. That isn't an easy thing to do with a factory rifle. That being said I love mine a couple things, the magazine length for this cartridge means seating the bullet deep into the case very close to saami specs, it seems to have quite a bit of free bore. This doesn't both me but some people don't like it. Also this rifle weights under 8 pounds loaded im sure you know the trade off with a light rifle. For the places I hunt I don't think I could have found a better rifle the action is super smooth decent adjustable trigger will drop down around 2 pounds breaks very clean. If you are looking for a light hunting rifle I would highly recommend the Tikka. If you want something for longer range you may want to look for a heavier platform for stability. Good luck.

I have a T3 22-250 bull barrel that shoots .5 groups at 100 with the cheap 40rd box of Win 45gr hallow points! With this round I mapped it to 500 for coyotes with a $200 Nikon 4-14 and it shoots 5" at 500 with this round! I could not have ever asked for anything more in a coyote blaster!! Ill be on the Less Johnson calls again soon looking for another lucky volunteer!
In 25-06 or 260 I think you will be pleased.
