I 'm considering buying a .22-250, been looking at a Tikka T3 lite, Kimber, Howa and Ruger American Predator.
Of these which do you think would be the most accurate?

I have a Howa 1500 that I have no complaints about. Love that rifle...

I know it is not on your list, but i bought a Rem 700 VLSS about 12 years ago. To date, it is the most accurate gun i have ever owned. It is still my primary hunting rifle for varmint, deer and pigs. It is heavy, but the thumbhole stock is nice.

I utilize a Ruger M77 with a Leupold fixed 6 on it. Absolute tack driver.

If you can't laugh at yourself, give me a call. I'll gladly laugh at you.

I'm a huge Tikka fan, but I don't think you can make a bad choice out of that list.

I own several of the Ruger Americans and Savage Model 10's and both are extremely accurate. I prefer the Ruger American Predator as it handles better for me. I drag them everywhere and abuse them more than most in extreme conditions and they keep shooting. Also hard to beat the price of the Ruger American.
Adios,
Gary

Can't go wrong with the TIKA T3.... it is a tack driver! I bought one off the forum about 4 years back and is a great shooting rifle!

another thing to consider..."twist" tikka has one in 1-8, some of the others limit your bullet weight, Savage has offered faster twist, buying new, I would not get any thing with a 1-9 or faster


hold on Newt, we got a runaway

I had a Savage .22-250 with the accu-trigger. Loved it. Super accurate. Loaned it to a friend and he and his son loved is so much I sold it to them.

My 22-250 Tikka T3 light is the only one hole rifle I’ve ever owned with several different loads. I like the 45gr TSX over a max load of RL15. It’s deadly on anything I’ve shot with it. The only bullet I’ve recovered was out of big Fisher county buck. The bullet broke his neck at 125 yards and ran down his spine to his [censored]. No weight loss on the little bullet. Did damage a little backstrap though.
The 1/14 doesn’t shoot anything over 50gr as well.

Bought my made in Japan Browning A-bolt back in the mid eighties, it’s an absolute tack driver. Probably hard to find one of them now though.

Shoot the same but with a 3x9 leupold


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I also have a Ruger 77, topped with an old Simmons 6.5x20x44 mag scope. Most expensive Simmons scope I'd ever seen at the time. The gun is a tack driver. Also, you could never go wrong with a savage.
