New Tikka T3 Compact! – could use some input
first post, first Tikka. I got the Compact in 308 (im a short barrel fan, nicer for in the thick), as soon as i saw it in person was sold. i went to the store planing on walking out with a Tikka just didnt know if i was going to go for the compact or the fullsize.
ive been eyeing the T3 for a few years, ended up buying the Rem700 AAC-SD last year which i absolutely love but that thing weighs a ton, and now with the trigger recall i just dont want to take it out to the bush on a 7 day hike, so it will be a target rifle(i never really ended up buying it proper glass yet either, just threw on a cheap scope i had kicking around) and the new T3 Compact will be the bushgun.
im trying to figure out which mounts i sould go wit, it seems like Optilock is everyones answer, but im curious why Leupold isnt on anyones radar? it seems to be a common mount for every other rifle and i know they make it for this 1.
im going to be probably going with a Leupold VX2 2-7 or VX3 2.5-8, i havent decided yet… the VX2 actual magnification is 2.5-6.8 i think i read so the VX3 really seems like the better choice for the extra $100 bucks.
any other optics i should look at?
