I found a new platform,
The Tikka T3 Lite .25-06. Mine came with perfect fit and finish. It has a very solid receiver but the gun is well balanced. The trigger was a bit heavy but you know Lawyers
I was afraid this was going to kick like a mule, but not so! The 25-06 is known to be a difficult caliber to tame, I fired a round cold bore. Swabbed it out, and was sighted in at 200 within 3 more rounds.
All was well!! So I ran the rest of the box just having a blast! I'm out of practice but managed a ragged 12 inch group. Sort of pathetic, but you can feel a racehorse in there wanting to get out! .I look forward to trying some of my reloads from a previous .25-06.
Bottom Line, Tikka has a new fan.
