Tikka are popular in Australia, along with many others. Howa are quite capable and reasonably priced.I once had a T3 Stainless in 308 Win. Great, handy, accurate rifle. I foolishly traded it for something else. Now I have a T3X Stainless 30/06 on the way to replace it. I should have it Monday. Hopefully it shoots as well as the 308.
When you talk Tikka in a gunshop in Australia they say something t
Like “They just shoot well, what can I say”. I bet some Sales rep came up with that cause I’ve heard it in different places.
I have a couple and they shoot well I’m sure I could practice more.
It seems the maching has close tolerances and they are a smooth action for what that’s worth but they are mostly accurate, remembering many are just a hunting configuration. .
