Accuracy differece between tikka t3 lite and tikka t3 varmint in .223 caliber
NOT taking into consideration rifle weight, rifle's intended use or any other such variable, which model is more accurate t3 lite or t3 varmint. I am only talking about accuracy from cold barrel, like three shot groups. If a t3 lite and a t3 varmint (not super varmint) are side by side in a prone position using same ammo, shot by the same shooter, with same trigger poundage, same barrel twist rate, same day, same time and everything else you can imagine being exactly the same, which one will be more accurate or they are equally accurate or you can barely tell the difference.
I regret buying a heavy barrel savage fcp-sr .308 when my sporter barrel remington 700 adl .308 with a limbsaver barrel de-resonator shoots exactly the same group size as the heavy barrel savage. They both always average to 0.75″ group at 100 yards.
I am trying to avoid repeating the same mistake with my .223 with tikka. Trying to come to a conclusion if I can install a de-resonator or a muzzle brake on t3 lite and get the exact same accuracy as the varmint version, then why get the heavier and more expensive gun.
Please comment only on accuracy aspect with everything else being irrelevant.
