Re: New Tikka T3 SL (super light)

I have recently purchased a Tikka t3 superlight in 7mm mag. I have not shot it yet, but plan to soon. It comes with rings and with the rings the gun is exactly 6.0 pounds on my fishing scale. The gun comes with a guarantee to shoot 1.0 inch 3 shot groups out of the box. I hope to shoot is soon and hope to post the results at that time

Re: New Tikka T3 SL (super light)

I have 2 of the Tika T3's that I hunt with. My biggest criticism is that the detachable magazine is too short to allow you to seat the bullets out as far as some like. My .300WSM shoots great. My .270WSM is decent. I think that it might do better with less bullet jump. By any chance have they addressed this in the new T3 lite? What calibers are available? Thanks Bruce

Gillette Hunter,

I reload my bullets and seat them as long as recommended in the Lee reloading manual. For the 7mm Remington magnum this is 3.29 inches. I have no problem loading and cycling them thought the action of my T3 Superlite. Looking at the bullets sitting in the box magazine, it looks as though there is a little room left to seat them a little longer if one would like. I don't know if there is a difference in the length of the magazines between the T3 lite and the superlite. I hope this is helpful. Good hunting!

Ron
