"You won't be disappointed" will bet he consensus on THF. You might consider spending another $100 and getting stainless, but that's just me.

I know of nothing in this price range as good as a Tikka. I have 3 and the bolt is smooth, outstanding trigger and they are consistently accurate.

I got the stainless T3 Lite. I wiped down the barrel the other day. It was so grimy that I was ashamed, but I do love the low maintenance aspect.

Same, and I would spend the extra $$ and get stainless.

Sometimes you find ""benchmark" products that you learn that you can trust to always be what you expected them to be ...I've owned 3 T3's & an older 695...so far, and expect to own some more....and YES, I'd suggest a Stainless too.

Thank you


I was considering a Browning X bolt but they are pricey. I was also considering a .270 but am now leaning towards a .308. I have been looking at the Tika's but I had wood and gun blue in mind instead of composite and stainless. Also planning to buy a Vortex to mount at the same time.

my X-Bolt in 7mm-08 is VERY accurate!!, nice gun, well finished. feather trigger is very good at 3.5# you would like it

I own 2 Sako 85's and absolutely love them. their distant cousin...Tikka is a nice gun too for the $$

Savage makes some great wood and blue guns too

I've never owned or even handled a Tikka, but on the strength of reports from other shooters whose opinions I respect, I'd say that you can't go wrong with a Tikka.

I hear lots of good reports about the Tikka, but the gripes are few and far between.

The one I keep looking at is the Forrester. (Wood and blue)
