Happy New Year to me.

My favorite pawn shop had this on the wall and really wanted to sell it in 2016. So I helped.

Tikka T3 Hunter, .243 Win. with a Leupold Rifleman 3-9x50 on it.

Haven't shot it yet, but looking forward to the chance.

Congrats, that will be a real tackdriver. Great deer or predator rifle.

I have two T3 Hunters, one in 30.06 and one in 6.5x55. They are the best bang for the buck out there. I have Talley rings on the .06 and the stock rings on the 6.5 swede. Mags are expensive.

Lights out for any deer within 400 yards. My two Tikkas are nothing short of spectacular. Daughter took her first deer this year with the 6.5x55 and I have a 270 WSM that has killed (DRT) everything I pointed it at with laser precision.

I had a T3 Hunter in 223 with 1/8 twist that I wish I still had. Sold it so I could purchase a P220 but wish that I hadn't, though if I hadn't, I might never have found you guys Eek

Welcome to the club and there are sure to me more to come.

Had a T3 a few years ago, it would shoot an inch or better with about any ammo you crammed in it, 308
Foolishly let it go

Picked up a Sako A7 last month, thread on here somewhere, first time out all 3 holes touching at 100 yards

Nice!

My buddy just picked up a Tikka Laminated Stainless in 270 Win, it's a beautiful rifle. We got his scope mounted up this weekend, excited to see how it shoots.

Nice. That should be a solid, accurate, predictable gun. The T3 always gets good reviews without exception.

Lots of Tikkas on here.
Got my T3x Stainless in .270 for Christmas & should be ordering a scope for it this week.

Those are really good shooters. They all have good triggers, very nice actions, and much better than average accuracy.

If I were in the market for a bolt gun, the Tikkas would be at the top of the list.

Congrats on a great deal (I assume). You can expect exceptional accuracy especially if you reload for it.
