Re: Browning, Savage, or Tikka?

Yodasghost,

First thought is for you to "handle them". See what feels good to you. All good choices. I myself have reviewed them & the winner for me was the Tikka SS. The stock is standard synthetic, but the accuracy comes from the barrel ~ they come out of the same factory as SAKO barrels do.. I got my gun it in the .270WSM. I reload myself and have found the 130gr Accubond bullet to be my best bullet. The bolt action is smooth as Silk! The rifle is lite and balanced ~ it just felt good to me. My final load for the .270WSM put's shots in one hole @ 100yds. I use it for deer/hogs. Got a 4-14x44 Zeiss Conquest on it. Great combo. Let us know what you decide on? Have fun!

    There is one weird design flaw in T3 Tactical 300 WM though: You can not fit "too long" cartridges in the magazine. This is some legal-security-lawyer thingy, Ive been told.

    Anyway,this may be a problem for someone. I thought it would be a problem for me. But it isnīt. We havenīt found ANY difference in accuracy up to 500 meters with , say, 210 Bergers. They just like to be pushed hard,touching the lands made no difference. Two other people with two rifles have made the same notes.

    Itīs still kinda funny. I think there also is a Sako factory round that wonīt fit in the T3 magazine. At least there has been one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I have a Tikka Varmint SS in .308. I really like this rifle. Holds tighter groups than I can shoot.

    If I had to buy another I'd probably buy the savage--accutrigger looks safe and nice to shoot. I'm really thinking hte Savage 12 F/TR will be my next LR rig that isn't custom.
