Re: Tikka T3 - Excessive Copper Fouling / Accuracy Issues?
USGILT, looks like 55 grns at .036 off was your best load. I would back it off .005 at a time & see how it works. My 270 wsm shoots the 130 & 150 bergers around .055 off the lands. As far as tikkas being inferior to other brands, maybe, maybe not. I have three tikkas, two Rem 700, two weatherbys. one a mark 5 & a vangaurd, a cz 550 & one custom built on a rem 700 action. All my tikkas shoot 1/2 inch or better as well as my other rifles, except the CZ which I have'nt shoot a group better than 1.5. In fact im about ready to give up LOL. Not all rifles are the same some just need a little more loving than others.
