Tikka T3 Lite is a great gun even if it was priced twice as much, which it isn't. I have one in 7 mag and 243. I recommend the stainless. Mine shoots around 0.5 MOA and I'm not the worlds best shot.

Of course buy a Tikka!

Great action with a very smooth 60 degree bolt throw, great trigger, usable stock (that's not wrong to upgrade later) all I have been behind became sub MOA rifles with a hand load.

Jump on it! I have a T3 Lite in .308 and it's quality is way above it's price. Definitely one of the best shooting bone-stock guns I've ever had.

I have a Tikka in 22-250 and it's the best shooting rifle I've ever owned. One hole gun @100. However I do favor the new M70 Featherweight I bought 2 years ago. It shoots almost as good and is a much better looking weapon.

Go for it. I have a Tikka CTR in 308 and just finished a custom build on tikka action. Won't find a better gun right out of the box.

I have a .270, 30-06 and 300WM. I love'em! Get a limbsaver recoil pad (it just screws right on) or get a B&C aftermarket stock.
God bless John Wayne!

best rifle for the price - been to africa, new zealand, south texas, etc. and it performs well - I use the 300 win mag - had it camo dipped and a 3x9 Leupold - bipod on it - deadly

Yeah, I'm a fan.grin
