Picked up a Tikka T3 Hunter (walnut stock) in .243win last week. Waiting on a scope base to show up. I’ve never trusted pinch rings even on .22’s. Just me. What a smooth action! Cold hammer forged barrel as well. This will be my Tennessee deer gun. Over kill on the scope (one I had laying around), Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25x50 with ranging reticle. Can’t wait to get to the range with it!

I have 3 centerfire Tikka T3xs, including a Roughtech Ember in. 243 WIN. What a great rifle and a great round! One of the best valued in a centerfire bolt action available IMHO. I am sure you will love it.

Congrats, a barrel burning round Roll Eyes according to some around here Wink
I have sixty plus year old Remingtons that still shoot like a dream. Love the round. I would use a different optic. 4x, 2-7 or 3-9 would be perfect and not be a behemoth on top of the great rifle you have.

Get Talley one piece rings for it. They are by far the best.

For the scope base I went with the Warne M9T3M Tikka 1 Piece Base, Matte finish. I wanted to keep it as low as possible. The rings are Warne as well, medium in hight.
