    tikka t3

    looks like a t 3 is going to be my next working rifle in 6.5 ! will there be any advantages or not in going for the heavy barrel over the sporter ? , kind regards

    I have both a varmint in .243 and a lite in 30-06. The only thing I shoot with the varmint is foxes and all my stalking is done with the 30-06. A bit long and heavy to lug about too far. The varmint has a 24" barrel with a jet z on the front.

    Go for a lite, you won't be dissapointed.

    I'd suggest the hunter. The stock won't flex like the lite and will feel more balanced; especially if you use a mod.

    I keep hearing about the stock flex on the tikka. There not that bad. Nothing like those plastic stocks they put on Howa rifles !

    I like the stainless laminated tikka. They look superb

    the heavy barrel may well piss you off carrying it around!

    Youll not be sorry got a LH last year the old 595 and sako 243 are largely redundent now only loosing the bit of weight may not seem much but it makes one ell of a differance after carring it all day.
