Tikka T3 in .300 win out of the box
This past year I bought a Tikka T3 300 win mag. I put a 4x16x44 viper HD scope on it, I went to store and due to the upcoming non lead regs in California I purchased the Barnes TTSX BT 165gr. ammo. We only had 1 chance to go to the range before general season opened here and the first thing i noticed is this gun group were out standing, i was on target in 6 shots and hitting sub moa groups, I checked load data and wanted the gun 0 at 200 yrds so since i didn't have a 200 yard target i set it 1.3 inches high at 100. Needless to say deer hunting public land here is extremely hard and we only have buck tags. We never saw a buck entire season out of 3 hunters so 2nd to last day I asked my father if we cold go up to a large canyon and take some long range shots, he shoots a custom 300 rum. So we went up there ranged out a 1 foot target at 474 yards. Me nor my father have ever shot that far. I took first shot with my dad saying no way you'll hit that across a canyon… Bullseye… my dad about flipped out of his seat said do it again… boom 1 inch to the left… so he took some shots and was able to match me… so then i found a 2 foot rock on other mountain ranged at 705 yards. He then said no way… boom smacked rock over almost center… this was the first time i had ever shot this far and my dad has never shot that far in his life. This gun performed flawlessly. I dont ever write reviews but i was so impressed i had to say something…. What a rifle. Thank you Tikka great job.
