Re: Tikka T3 or the Tikka Varmint??????
I steered one of my friends towards the tikka super varmint and what a beautiful rifle it is. Absolute tack driver, hardly fouls, picatinny rail and adjustable cheek peice. One of the other things I thought was great was the magazine was a hard polymer and unlikely to be bent out of shape.
I highly recommend looking at the super varmint, I think it will be my next purchase....as for the weight it may become a mental game as you know it is heavier. If I was made of money the tactical would be up there too.
