I think you would be very happy with the T3 lite. I bought one in 243 and it has left such an impression on me that I will be buying more T3's. Just think by the time you add a sling, scope and mounts you rifle is going to weigh a little more anyway so why not start out lite, IMO

This is what I am getting. Just as soon as the license comes through in .308. It will have the lighter synthetic stock

SAKO 75 VARMINT LAMINATED STAINLESS

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.

Cheers,

CZ

The shooters in Canada & Europe have a much better selection of Tikka T3 rifles....in the USA the laminated stock w/SS has been dropped along with the SS Varmint series....Beretta really needs to pull their head out....

I have a T3 lite in 243 and it has been a great rifle. Most accurate rifle I have ever owned. I like it so much that some day I will buy another T3.
