    Tikka T3 Lite or Browning X-Bolt .243

    I am looking at getting one of these rifles from avalon guns, and the guy at the shop recommended the Browning.

    Just after some advice to what you think to each of the rifles.


    If at first you don't succeed, reload

    I weighed up these two options when I bought mine... have not ever regretted going for the Tikka T3 Lite Stainless... it's a great rifle for the money!

    I have shot both these rifles get a T3.

    I have the x- bolt stainless stalker in .243 and would recommend it.
    Not shot the T3 lite, so unable to comment on which is the better rifle.

    The T3 lite in stainless, without a doubt.
    I have tried the X bolt and didn't like it, so went for the T3 in stainless.
    I have never regretted it.
    You need to try both if possible as one may fit you better, after all we are different shapes and sizes.

    T3 for me too tried the browning and was not impressed.

    Thanks for all your comments and my thoughts was with the T3 too as I already have a Tikka M590 22-250 that shoots great. I think Avalon guns must have more profit margin in the browning.

    Anyway I didn't get either and bought a Remington 700 Stainless synthetic from John Carrs last night and a Zeiss scope. It just needs screw cutting so cannot wait till next week to play with my new toy.
