Re: Steel/glass bed a tikka t3 varmint?
I also have a Tikka T3 varmint in .223 and no I have not found the need to glass bed it. Last weekend I shot 4 100yds 3 shot groups using Sierra BK 40gr for .76", .33", .76", .33" and finished with a 3 shot group at 200 yds for .76".
If you wish to add weight I suggest you put some lead in the hollow stock butt. Take off the recoil pad, get some ball fishing sinkers and put them in. You can make up paper tubes to put the lead balls into then insert the tubes. This way you do not have them rattling around. You will add about 1.5 - 2.0lb this way. This is what I did and the groups above are what it shot. You could also add an adjustable cheek piece which I did. The check piece that comes with it was too low for me.
