Recently bought a Tikka T3 Lite SS synthetic in .223, 1 in 8" twist. Had looked at Remingtons...........easy choice....the Tikka is much smoother, better quality over all. Not real happy with the synthetic removable clip, but functions fine. The best part, it shoots great.....69 gr Sierra with 25 grs. Varget, 1/2" to 3/4" at 100 yds with a 10x Leupold while fire forming brass.......Did have a little difficulty with single loading rnds, did not feed by dropping rnds into action. Used a .223 stripper clip, fit one round to the clip, stick in action and remove the clip, worth the effort as the gun is fun to shoot. Lightened the trigger, easily done with profided allen wrench............Comes with nice scope rings.....Would buy another without hesitation............Barry
I have a T3 Stainless in 7-08, with loads it likes it's very accurate and is light and handy, not a rifle I'd care to spend tons of time at the bench with but not unpleasant to shoot off the bench either. Nice,simple, solid design.
I've got the T3 Laminated in 270 Win with a Sightron 3-9 on it. I love to shot it, to bad the price of ammo keeps going up. Best part is, I'm shooting 1/2" sized groups at 100 yds with Federal Champion that was 9 bucks. I threw a limbsaver recoil pad on it. Perfect fit and really took the muzzle jump out. I went through a box with only a T-shirt on. Very comfortable. I highly recommend. And so do others I've spoken with.
