Re: Tikka T3 Problems - Please Help
I am having the same problem with my Sako Finnlight. It is going back to the factory for the second time. If you tell them about shooting handloads out of it, chances are they will void the warrantee. And if you have modified your barrel for the suppressors, chances are you are toast for the warrantee. Any mods at all to the rifle, bedding, etc., and shooting handloads will null your warrantee. What I have learned from my experience in buying a factory rifle with an accuracy guarantee is to get a box of factory ammo and shoot it.
If the factory doesn't honor the warrantee, you can always do the standard bedding and re-crown job. One other thing is the rings. Tikka rings are crap. You might try replacing the rings and bases. Ihave read a few reports where that has fixed the accuracy problems, but usually in the more powerfull cartridges.
Last, my Finnlight also has a lot of freebore. Bullets seated to fit the mag will not come close to the lands. To seat the bullets close to the lands means shooting single shot.
Hope it works ourt for your mates,
