Re: Browning X Bolt vs. Tikka T3

I own both a Tikka T3 Lite and Brownings. Both are great guns but I prefer the Browing. Couldn't tell you why but I love the bolt and the feel. Can't go wrong w/ either but I would buy a Browning.

I bought my grandson a Tikka T3 243 win. It shoots 85-100 gn bullets just fine, it doesn't hurt they are my handlods.

Re: Browning X Bolt vs. Tikka T3

I've got a lh T3ss in 270 and it is a solid 1/2" 100 yard gun with most loads; it is the least finicky gun I own. I also own a browning a-bolt ss stalker lh boss 300 win (no x-bolt yet) and it is simply the most deadly rifle I own. I usually use it as a backup simply because I need to actually try to kill something with the other rifles first as this one has so many more kills on it. Either choice will do you well.
