Does anybody have any real world experience shooting the T3 Lite rifle in this chambering. I have a Sako L46 chambered in 222 Rem. that is rifled 1:14. It always shot 50 gr. bullets exceptionally well but would always send 55 gr. bullets down range half sideways.
Get the tikka, it'll be fine. A 22-250 is just a touch faster than the 222.
Tikka's have been dang accurate from what I've seen and heard. I have one in 270 and it's great.
