    New rifle decision.

    well after looking for a replacement rifle for my Remington I’ve put a deposit down on a Tikka T3X super varmint tactical in .223, don’t know how long I’ll have to wait for it to arrive in the shop but hope it’s the right choice. In the meantime what’s a good moderator for said rifle I’d like it as light as possible .

    Browning x bolt.

    I was looking at barrel twist rate and adjustable stock in.223, and thought the browning would fit the bill I did look at a tikka T3x super varmint but changed my mind weight was the biggest issue.i had a look at a Remington 700 police 20inch with a pillar bedded stock fluted barrel but no stock adjustment.i see sako do a nice rifle stainless with ceracoated. Carbon fibre stock so nice and light and of course sako quality, however not available in .223.

    Hmm interesting if rather rude answer especially when you don’t know circumstances, any one else like to air their views .

    Browning x bolt.

    Still looking for a new rifle I’ve been looking for over a year and thought of a T3x super varmint, but I’ve seen a browning x bolt stainless fluted with adjustable cheek piece rifling twist is 1 in 8 or 1-9 as I’ve enquired. has anyone any experience with the x bolt or perhaps owns one?it sounds a pretty nice rifle but what’s people’s views on them.

    Rifle twist

    That’s what I was told it’s a Sauer 202 ,I don’t know anything about Sauer just thought I’d ask.it does however look like a very nice rifle I’ll probably end up getting the tikka T3x as I think they offer good value for money and I believe a one in eight twist.

    Rifle twist

    I have been looking for a new rifle probably a tikka T3x but have seen a rifle that I rather like it’s also in .223 but its in 1in10 twist only, what weight heads would this stabilise ?I know the tikka is 1in 8 which appeals to me which would you go for going on twist rate?

    Tikka T3X super varmint.

    It’s for both I’ve got two empty slots for.223 on my ticket but may Change for something else on one slot. I’ve only two slots after selling my Remington.

    Tikka T3X super varmint.

    Hi Marty mark, I’m after a.223 but can’t get it till January not that I mind the wail, I’m sort of interested in the tactical T3x. But I don’t know if I can justify an extra £400 quid on top of the price of a standard T3x super varmint. Thought I’d ask though as by the time you buy the rifle and realise you’re going to spend a fortune on it doing up grades it may be easier and cheaper to just get the next model up.

    Tikka T3X super varmint.

    could anybody point out the difference between the T3x super varmint and the T3x tactical apart from the finish and the magazine what’s different.

    new rifle trouble

    bloody hell I wish I hadn't posted im going to take a look at the remy and tika I chose the tikka with adjustable stock for night vision (eventually) I do like remi actions but the cost of re stocking may be a little expensive the c/z well after market stocks etc isn't readily available as in future I may want that option.
