Thread: Tikka T3.. 223 in 308 magazine?

    Tikka T3.. 223 in 308 magazine?

    Does anybody know if a Tikka T3 will feed 223s, from a 308 magazine?

    I am thinking about the OAL, when loading 75 Amax bullets.. as they will not fit in 223 magazine without modifications.

    I have none of the rifles, so I cant measure it myself.

    No. Just tried it with 55grn Samson soft points.

    Sorry for the alliteration, but a minor mechanical miracle maybe ... if it did. The .223 pops out of any .308 magazine so NO CHANCE.
    Ammo collector & cartridge geek Ö. if I donít have it you donít shoot it.

    That's what I found, but if you just put one round in, and push it forward in the mag, it will feed into the chamber.
