I have recently brought a T3 Tikka and I'm getting on famously with it. That is 'was'. It is great when zeroing off the bipod at the range at paper targets, but with the bipod fitted but not extended and the rifle fired from sticks or high seat, the zeroing changes to about four inchs higher by two to the left! I've spoken to a gunsmith who says have the rifle rebedded at some expense or don't use the bipod. He reckons that I'm applying more weight to the rifle on the bipod than when I'm shooting off sticks or high seat. The Tikka lite's, light synthetic stock is twisting against the bipod and throwing the shoot off. Thankfully I haven't shot and wounded anything, the general reaction is for the deer or foxs to look over its shoulder and say "what the f**k was that!?"
Any thoughts on this?
