    What do you shoot your .308 T3 Tikka Varmint with?

    Hello

    Im getting a Tikka T3 varmint on saturday in .308. Any advice on what that particular rifle likes to shoot would be welcome. Im thinking a 150g soft point bullet for all round use but not sure what brand to get. I mainly shoot Roe but would like to stalk Red and Sika at some point.

    Cheers John

    I have (only for another 4 days) a T3 Tactical in .308, same barrel, I believe at the Varmint. I tried PPU 150gr, just to get onto paper to zero, it liked them, might be worth a try.

    Prior to reloading I had no problems with Federal PowerShok 150gr. The supply and cost pushed me onto reloading for it.

    If you go down the reloading line, again, it liked 150gr Gamekings, 44gr of Vhit 140, that load is fairly standard for .308's but the .308 is a reasonably forgiving round.

    Good Luck and enjoy it.
