i was amazed on the weekend that my new T3 270 shot winchester super x ammo better then the supreme xp3....both were same grain 150. just wondering what kinda ammo your T3 seems to prefer? thanks for the info guys...happy hunting!!
i shoot handloads out of my tikka .300 win and ill tell ya its worth the investment in time and money to reload. after testing about 7 different loads ive got my t3 shooting 1/2 inch groups at 200 yards, and hitting hard. i love this rifle
I have 2 .308 and 300WSW and they both drive tacks at any distance. the one thing I like about them the most is they seem to have no perference to grain weight. When I go from 150 gr to 180 gr all I need to do is re-zero and they rock the house. The price is right too. Mine are synthetic and I wish for the 300 I would have bought one in wood for the weight issue, when shooting the 300 you know it's a BIG CALIBER. But, I dont think you can go wrong. A Tika rep told me the barrels for TIKA and SAKO are the same? I do not this to be factual, but it's what was told to me.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
