Hey guys. Ive never posted a thread but have read many trying to decide on which rifle i wanted. ive decided on, and ordered, a tikka t3 tactical in .308 with the 24 inch barrel, and 11" twist, and was wondering if anyone on here has any hands on with this rifle? Also... any suggested load configurations that would be suited to mid to long range paper punching that i could also possibly use to hunt whitetails? Thanks in advance and for what its worth i chose this site because you guys seem very knowledgeable and RESPECTFUL while answering questions unlike a lot of other sites.
