Just bought a Tikka T3 Hunter in a .270.

The gun comes with rings, but what else do I need?

I've had sever THF members comment saying Minoz ZV3

I would like to preview or at least see one in an academy or similar store so I can see what I'll be working with.

Also trying to keep the cost down around 100 but maybe up to 150.

Any thoughts?

Almost too many options, but I would suggest a quality scope maker, which many may disagree on as to what is quality or not. In that price range, I'd probably lean toward a Burris Fullfield II. I did have a pretty good Bushnell 4-12 that I got at Bass Pro for $150.

Bear, while researching make sure the scope diameter and rings match if you don't want to buy other rings.
I have no idea on the quality of the rings Tikka offers, surely others here will, just remember, the stability of your mounted scope is just as important as the scope itself, even more.

Install a one piece base, and Weaver type rings, scrap the factory rings. The rings that come with a Tikka are for a 1" tube, though.

Minox makes excellent scopes. I have a ZP5 and a ZX5. Both are outstanding. No experience with the ZV3, but if it follows the pattern of Minox's other products, it'll be a great optic for the money.

Something 3x15 or 4x12 would be ideal. Several good options, I would spend as much as you can on your scope. Definitely recommend getting an EGW rail and a set of quality rings.

Trash those rings and don't get a $115 sale scope or you will be back in two weeks wondering why your gun doesn't shoot

You are in Waxahachie? Ever drive to SWFA? They can probably find you something.

Just bought this in left hand, stainless, .308 for my stepson. Didn't go with a rail but bought Warne rings that mount to the grooves. Went with a Vortex Crossfire for him, 4-12. Was trying to keep set up under $1,000.00. I like the low sight line and the absence of more tolerance stack up from another component. Gun shoots great, like you'd expect. I was reluctant to not use a rail or base mount as I have on my stuff. So far so good.

I have some DNZ 1 inch mounts in silver. You can have them if you ever find yourself close to Groesbeck.

This, especially the part about tossing the rings.
