Tikka T3 308- bolt hard to close on some factory ammo
Hey guys- new to the forum – name is Rick, live in Highland Village TX…….
Recently purchased a Tikka T3 lite 308, shot it for the first time a few days ago, bought some Hornady Superformance 165gr GMX and had to really force the bolt to close. Shot about 10 rounds and didn't want to push it, wasn't really impressed with its groupings, sure some of t was me being new to the trigger, but I shoot better than I shot. Came home and tried some old Monarchs 145gr and they cycled smoth as can be! Also tried some TulAmmo 150gr with the same results ( smooth ). I'm wondering if this is a headspace or throating issue? Maybe it just doesn't like this ammo!!
Any help will be greatly appreciated before I go the warranty route….
