Tikka's T3x Lite Stainless offers a durable high performance rifle capable of withstanding even the most challenging of days in the field. The synthetic stock combines lightweight with T3x's interchangeable grip and fore end, allowing the shooter to perfectly configure the Lite Stainless for the day ahead. With the metal parts made of Sako's high-grade stainless steel, the T3x Lite Stainless will deliver a new level of accuracy no matter what the climate may bring.
The Tikka actions are much smoother than anything else on the market in the same price range. The accuracy is also much better. I'm not sure about the other review, but my Tikka can shoot 1 inch groups at 100 yards all day long.
I bought my Tika T3 stainless synthetic in a .270 wsm caliber over 10 years ago and straight out of the box it shot 4 inch groupings. I put a Nikon Monarch 3x9x40 and it's a perfect setup for deer. I shoot Remington Core Lokt shells in 130 grain and have killed many deer. It's a great rifle and would recommend it to anyone. The ammo gets a bit expensive though.
