Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and just wanted to say hello. I also have some Questions about buying a new tikka. A little over a year ago, I had to make a decision between a vanguard S2 and a Tikka t3 lite. Because, I was getting a 300 wm I ended up going with the vanguard because of the extra weight. I am very displeased with this gun. It groups around 1 moa but sometimes will spread out to around 1.5 or 2 moa at 100y. It is inconsistent and i do not like the action at all i have had many experiences in extreme cold or heat where the bolt would not cycle. My plan now is to sell the gun with the scope attached(Ziess terra 4-12×42) I'm kinda thinking that i wont get very much for it if i trade it in/sell it too a gun store, but even with the little i can get its worth it to me to loose some money on it and get a Tikka which i'm sure i will love. The problem is I haven't heard the raving reviews on the t3x as i do with all the regular t3's. I know its a fairly new gun to the U.S. but i would love it if someone could give me some reassurance on the t3x or maybe even steer me in a different direction. I'm 17, and don't have the money to be making bad purchase decisions again, so any info or shared experiences would be a huge help. I have a hunting trip in November, and i like the fact that the t3x comes with the steel recoil lug, and Bolt shroud. Future Plans include B&C stock and muzzle break, but for now would love a gun that shoots well straight from the factory with a magnum round. Any insight would be greatly appreciated Thanks!!
