  1. While getting familiar with my T3x I noticed that my groups when using "set" trigger are not better than when using standard, heavy setting. I also noticed a slight jerk when using "set", even when dry firing. Am I imagining things or have someone else noticed that too? Michal
  2. I wonder if anyone can help explain these odd results. I'm using ELD-X 143gn with N550 and have spent some time developing the load, tweaking seating depth but keep getting strange groups. This is a typical example, an 8 shot group, of sorts, with five touching in one group and a separate group of 3 shots to the left and slightly higher. This was shot at 208m with a very slight tail wind, with an occasional cross wind (from left to right). The loads are all measured as precisely as possible, to a few kernels of each other, bullets seated to the same depth, same case type, same trim length, same primer. The average velocity is 2600fps. Action seems tight in the stock, torqued down, scope mounts torqued too. It could just be user error I guess, but it seems odd that I get some shots printing on one, tight group and others printing similarly close in another spot. The barrel had been threaded but the guy who did it knows his onions so I doubt that is an issue, the crown is factory cut however, and hasn't been touched. It is a new rifle and may just need a few more down it perhaps. Anyone seen this sort of thing before?
  3. While checking out a newly bought Tikka T3x I noticed the barrel touching the stock a couple inches from the chamber. I'm wondering if it would be sensible to remove a bit of material to make the barrel truly free floating? TIA, Michal
  4. Hello, After the above with a .473 inch bolt-face please. Thanks!
  5. Now that my Fclass rifle is done, I'm thinking of a tactical build on the new MDT LSS chassis w carbine butt stock and Vortex Razor 4.5-27 scope. Would you recommend a tikka T3 action for a tactical rifle build? i'm looking at a s/h action with a bartlein 24" barrel fluted for a 260rem or 6.5creedmoor on a tikka t3 action. I read that these are available also in short action but can't seem to find any. Do they require any truing like the rem700s or are they good to go? tnks Rod
  6. For sale is my Tikka T3 Hunter in .243 win. This was my first stalking rifle but has had very little use with around 350 rounds through it, hence the decision to sell it. It is a standard RH T3 Hunter complete with a T8 moderator and Sako Optilock rings. The scope is a Leupold VX-L 4.5-14x50 with a varminter ballistic reticule. The rifle is in very good condition as is the moderator and scope due to them seeing very little use. The Leupold scope is very clear and the ballistic reticule works very well with 100gn Federal blue box ammunition. The rifle is now with my RFD so extra pictures will need to be taken when I'm next over there if required. The rifle can also be sent RFD-RFD at buyers cost. I'm asking for £1000 ono for the whole package. I would like to sell the items as a package. Thanks, Sean.

    Wanted Tikka T3 varmint stainless 223

    Hi I'm looking for a Tikka T3 stainless varmint in 223 Will look at both varmint and super varmint. Please respond with age of rifle and total shot count. Also please give me an idea of grouping at say 100 yards or more. Thanks
  13. These are amazingly light and sturdy and I've sold 6 similar setups this week! Only got black available right now, but here are some pictures in FDE and Black.
  14. As per title and recent posts, I am selling Don's Tikka T3 .204 supervarmint with his passing last month. Other than a bit of oil that needs cleaning off the action, it is in excellent condition, with only the minutest mark on the barrel, which I have captured. Less than 600 rounds I would say and was purchased around April 2013 as I collected mine around this time too. The rifle can be viewed and collected from Newtoft, just outside of Market Rasen, and is boxed with 6 shot magazine, instructions barrel playing thingy. He has 400 fired Hornady .204 brass also that has been fired in this rifle, so can do a deal on these too as well as a DM80 .20 moderator. For the rifle were asking £780 which is £30 more than valued by the RFD that sold it to him. These 24" barrels are on a 6-8 month waiting list, as we both ordered these as special orders. Any queries, drop me a PM. I've put some pictures in my classified folder, please scroll through to the Tikka. http://s408.photobucket.com/user/Sandy_750/media/Classifieds/IMG_0409_zpsb67947f3.jpg.html?sort=3&o=6 Thanks Sandy
  15. I managed to get out for a couple of hours this afternoon (inbetween showers!) to have a play with my .243. Since getting my TRG its taken a back seat on longer range work, however as the .308 is scopeless I thought I would give the old T3 a go. My Windtronic 2 and complex directional wind device also got out for the first time and it made it alot more fun not having to guess wind speed. I felt a lot more confident dialling in and if the wind wasnt gusting I may have done OK. I had two boards set up, one at 200y, the other at 350y. Im using Strelock app to dial in which is very easy to use and accurate. As i dont yet have a chrony I used the adjust velocity fuction to fine tune the app to my load with good results. I will eventually get a chrony to take out the guess work! I normally use this rifle on foxes with the lamp to no more than 150y so my current load uses 58gr VMAX as I like its flat trajectory but in wind at 350y they are not ideal. At 350y I manged to get very good vertical with little variation from highest to lowest so I'm happy that my loads are consistant but reading the wind was tough and the horizontal spread was around 6 inches. The rifle is 2008 model with 20" barrel and I think it is 1 in 10 twist (please correct me if I'm wrong) as Ive never checked it. What are the bullet options for a 1 in 10 twist .243? I would like a bullet with better BC for managing wind but not overly heavy. Any advice welcome! (PS. please ignore the use of the wifes door stop as a rear bag )
  16. For sale is my Boyds laminate varmint thumbhole stock in nutmeg colour. This was bought to go on my Tikka T3 Varmint but never got fitted and I have decided to go for a chassis system.
