Opening day disaster
:'(Hello, first time poster here. Well I have hunted whitetail deer for 25 years. I have never even heard of anything close to what happened to me this past opening day for the Wisconsin rifle season 2015. I bought two new Tikka's in March of this year. One .270 win. The other .308 win. At the range all summer, they both shot very well with no problems. Both held 1 inch or smaller groups at 100 yards. Both liked Hornady SST factory ammo. Both rifles have 100 rounds through them. I decided to use the .308 win. opening day. The rifle miss fired a total of four times at two different 8pt bucks. The firing pin struck the primers on all four shots, but not hard enough. The rifle is on its way back to Beretta. The firing pin was measured, and I was told it was to short. I'm very disappointed, because the bucks were wall hangers.
