I bought this Rifle, Tikka T3 Hunter Deluxe in .243 Cal.
It will be my fox and small deer rifle, I went on a shoping spree, for various type of ammunition, to find out what this rifle like to cycle.
Makers of Ammunition selected were:
Tried some PPUs that a friend generously donated to me, it was a bit of a disaster, hitting the paper all over the place, then I switched to the Geco, with very little hope, thinking another cheap round, they will hit the paper all over the place again, but to my surprise, they were grouping in a inch circle, to make sure I did use all the box of 20 .....hey its my new toy, got to play with it a little.
I was shooting 3 at the time and resting/cooling the barrel for a little while, it was amazing to see, what a huge difference in accuracy, a hot barrel to a cold barrel it makes, a difference of 3-4 inches of the grouping.
I was really happy with my new rifle and happier that it likes Gecos 105gr, so I don't have to buy Federal for those prices £40 per box
What to do with the rest of the unopened boxes of ammunition? The shop, where I bought the Gecos, doesn't stock the other makes...tho
All the Best
