    Tikka t3X

    Im looking for a new .243 for fox and deer and have around £1k to spend. Is the Tikka t3x the best value gun on the market at the moment?

    Probably!

    but I bet you can pick up a nice deal on the old T3's at the mo, and use the change on the scope.

    happy shopping,

    I bought a second hand 22-250 stainless t3. Looked perfect but barrel was shot out. Got a take off t3 243 barrel in and she now shoots.

    I like the look of the lightweight Browning and at a good price.

    I also think that Howas are under rated and excelent value for money.

    I didn't like the stocks on the old Tikkas, perhaps the new ones are better and may sway you.
    It is a nightmare having to make a choice.
    Best of luck.

    Overall I don't think you will go wrong. I would choose the T3 preferably in stainless for our climate over any other in a similar price bracket. In my earlier post I just wanted to say beware with second hand as some are shot out even if they look fine.

    A lot of guns out there as good as the Tikka, Thomson TC venture, ruger American , CZ, Howa , the tikka has a large following, but is not the only gun at the party.

    Personally, I'd buy a Sako 75

    For £100 more than your budget, you can have a complete package:

    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    I think you have a better chance of getting an accurate rifle with the tikka. I have seen new remington, howa, and ruger rifles that had accuracy problems but never a tikka.

    Was pondering the same question last week but in .22-250. Ended up buying a T3 adjustable on Friday. The adjustable stock seemed to feel nicer than the standard T3 stock. Not sure I like the interchangeable grip on the T3X, I'd be worried it fell off. Bought a Sako A7 in .270 last year which I really like, but didn't want to spend the extra cash for this one and knew I'd not regret buying a T3. Was half tempted by a Howa last week considering the price but it didn't really do it for me. If someone had been selling a Sako 75 close by and it was in decent condition I'd have probably went for that, although would be a little worried the barrel was shot out given the calibre and age.
