    Who can say?
    whats good in one t3 maybe crap in another.
    buy a box of 20 or scrounge some different makes weights and shoot them.
    make sure you clean and run in the barrel and don't let it heat up.

    Mine likes Federal Powershok, PPU and Remington all 55gr SP bullets.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I use Federal Powershok, 55 grains, in my Sako 85 and they group well.

    50g Norma V Max, shoots under 3/4"at 100 yards all day in my T3 Hunter Deluxe.

    Reaching out today to well over 350 yards at the Catton rifle shoot & hitting fox & hare sized targets no problem.

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    hi mate i always give the barrel a good scrum before firing any shots down it when new.
    just to get any of the crap out they put into them when shipped to the dealer.

    on my cf rifles i always patch them after use. even if its not copper or carbon cleaner. just get most of the rubbish out. before putting them away.

    if you have fired a good number of shots then clean them with the copper or carbon cleaner next day
