New member here from VA! Ordered a new Tikka T3x Lite Stainless in 7mm Remington Magnum this week from Whittaker's in Owensboro, KY. I have been looking for a light weight, long range, accurate rifle and think the T3X will work well. I have a Leupold VX3, 3.5-10 x 40 and a set of Warne rings sitting in the safe ready to go.
Look forward to meeting fellow Tikka owners and learning more about these rifles!
New member here from Birmingham, AL. Thanks to this forum, Snipers Central, and the Snipers Hide for steering me towards purchasing my first TIKKA. I was looking for a long range gun for popping paper, Varmints, and occasionally deer. I looked all around for the T3 Varmint in .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor. I saw several used ones but couldn't pull the trigger on an online purchase when I haven't seen it in person. Finally, I was at my local gun store the other day…shooting the bull…and Johnny said why don't you just go with the T3 Tactical. He had a couple T3 Tactical's in .308 that he was trying to get rid of now that deer season is over. We worked out a deal for the gun and a Vortex Viper 6-24×50. I went out last week to sight/break in. I am absolutely in love with this gun. I was covering up holes at 100 yards. Can't wait to stretch it out to 500+ yards. Need to learn how to reload as well 😉
