    I have been a long time fan of Remys, trued they shoot very well. I just bought my first Tikka T-3 SS and have to say what a good rifle they make. First group out of the gun was .5" 100 yds shooting 168 Bergers. The rifle loads from the magazine with this load also. It is by far the slickest feeding rifle I have. Now weighing in scoped at 7.18 lbs is cool too.

    Kool man, same thing with my tikka t-3 lh in 270.
    I got sick of my Browning a-bolt mk1 in 270 and went to tikka; I figured I could shove it up the gun shop's south pipe if it was crappy. I kept it and have over 500 rounds through it in less than a year. I've got a elite 3200 10x fixed on mine and it is light. One of the best rifles I've ever bought. It will shoot nearly anything I stuff in it very well.

    One thing I am finding with my SS bbl'd T3 is that it does not load up with copper fowling. They have very nice bbl's on them. Mine is chambered in 270 Win. Bought it in 2007.
    Enjoy!

    I noticed the same thing, fired 10 shots the first day out. When I cleaned the gun, there wasn't any copper at all. I use the same copper cleaner I use on my competition rifles.
