Some folks dislike the T3's aluminum scope rings. I used them on a .243 and had no problem. You can find aftermarket rings made specifically for Tikkas from Warne that use the dovetail on top of the receiver. Just make sure you put the correct ring in front and have the lug fit into the hole.
I believe the only change to the receiver was to increase the size of the ejection port to make single loading easier.
Get yourself a Pelican case. They are not cheap, but they are very durable and they are also perfect for rifles that get put in the holds of airplanes.
All of my rifles have slings made by sloganoutdoors (www.sloganoutdoors.com). They don't slip.
The only accessory I would recommend is some reactive targets if you have a place where you can use them. The self-healing kind move, while gongs provide instant feedback. They offer some variety instead of always punching paper.
I believe the T3X has a better recoil pad than the T3s did so no need to replace it with a Limbsaver.
Let us know how you like your '06. I have a Winchester 670 in that caliber and although I've been very successful with it, I don;t enjoy shooting it as much as the two Tikkas I own (in smaller calibers).
