    Hi mate, have a T3 Varmint and it's the best investment I have ever made.

    Hi there, I have a T3 laminated stainless in .243 and, although I probably wouldn't have another .243, I'd definitely have another T3.

    I shoot a Tika T3 in 25/06, with a moderator T8 and a scope it is nicely balanced and I can easily stalk with it. But it holds a lot of powder and needs a lot of barrel, in the T3 2900 with a 117 g bullet is a struggle, factory federal only do 2800. With a 100 g it easily does 3250 - to date with good bullet performance on deer.

    Do I need the velocity, that's another thread.

    I know where there is a nice sako m995 in 25-06 if you are interested private sale and he is not asking silly money he would just prefer a .243

    I'm no rifle "expert", but I wouldn't swap my Sako 75 25-06 for anything else. Now that the 85 is out, there are bound to be some second hand ones around
