Tikka T3 Varmint .308 + Super Sniper 16x42 (have you....?)
I would appreciate your input regarding your experience with the referenced rifle and scope (Tikka T3 Varmint .308 and super sniper 16x42mm scope).
I was almost done buying a 700 SPS Varmint .243 Win., same scope with Badger base and rings, but I was attracted to the Tikka and would like to skip the base and ring costs and use the Optilock mounts (I hope I am not going to sacrifice much precission by avoiding Badger.
Main purpose is to start shooting mid. range and to hunt wild hog and whitetail deer. (I don't want to say long range because that may be reserved for those 300 RUM and other magnums.)
I appreciate your inputs.
