Tikka T3 7mm--- I'm a believer!

Wow- on a whim I purchased a Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in 7mm rem mag a few days ago. Got it scoped (nothing special; a Nikon Prostaff 4-12). Anyway, got it to the range today, and shot pretty cheap ammo through it (Winchester SuperX 150 grainers). WOW was I impressed!!!! Even with the cheap cr@p ammo, I was consistently shooting sub MOA. It was funny how consistent it shot; every group was right about 3/4". I really was not expecting that.

I cannot WAIT to see what this thing will do when I get some premium ammo

Maybe I should change my name to "TikkaScott"

I have six tikka t-3's and they all shoot great. Several friends also have them now after seeing mine shoot. They are one of the best buys out there. If a guy is looking for a half mile rifle you can't do any better for the money.
