Tikka T3X Forest Review
I recently got a Tikka T3x Forest in .270 and thought I should share a few comments.
First the good news – this is a beautiful rifle with an incredibly smooth bolt action and a fine trigger.
BUT, in multiple trips to the range using a high end Leopold scope I've never been able to get anywhere close to the guaranteed MOA.
Zeroing this rifle is a challenge if not impossible because:
1. The barrel overheats so quickly and then the shots are all over the board. Very Very Hot Barrel Very Quickly.
2. The recoil on this rifle is ridiculous. It literally jumps out of my hand. I'm 220 lbs and it's a struggle to hang on. After a while, the natural inclination is to flinch when pulling the trigger – not good.
This is a nice gun to look at but useless for hunting. I want a refund!!
