Total Newbie here - opinion on Tikka

I am getting a T3 left hand in .308 with a Zeiss scope already on it for basically nothing (favor kind of thing). I believe this is a good starting base. Because I am brand new to this I would rather start on a solid platform and then look to to other platforms later. Given what I describe above is this a good platform to start from or should I start saving for something different?

Sounds like the price is right. I've loaded for two Tikkas in 30-06. They both shoot 1/2inch, and that is just stock from the factory.

At the range,at a bench with a solid rest.

W-W Brass
165 Nos BT , .010 off the lands
59.5 gr IMR4350
CCI 200 primer

These guns shoot better out of the box than my Rem 700 with a 24in Shilen barrel.

Re: Total Newbie here - opinion on Tikka

mid range deer, maybe a muley. Targets to get me tuned in to this whole new thing. I am picking this up as a new "sport" as it has always fascinated me. I actually have a brother that hunts nothern Wyoming with a .300 Wby. I just decided I did not want to learn on a hard kickin rifle yet. Also, and I really love him, he is one opinion and does things his way. Right or wrong I would rather learn form a community and get many different insights into this new hobby than a lone opinion. I am in walk before crawling stage.
