Couple pics from the range today. I used to be impressed with the Tikka T3 for $500 but now that is blown away by these $300 specials. Little paint and a bed and float.......
243 and a 25-06

Target if you can't read it as from the 243 (58gr Vmax on left and 90br Bal Tip on rt)

25-06 shoots almost as well......

Yes. Couple more pics.
25-06 and a 243 200yd group. Using 18grs of Blue Dot with the 58gr Vmax (~2800fps and no recoil)...

ooooh sweet,

I have a 25-06 on the way myself. Can't get here fast enough.

Hey dhbwa, add a good picture that shows off your paint job to the camo thread in this section.
Also, tell us how you did that pattern.

keep the range results coming too! Thanks, Gregg

We took a T3 light out of its cheap plastic stock, and bedded it in a Richards tac driver laminate stock.
Its printing .5 MOA at 200 yards using 180gr A-Max in 300WM.
The owner almost sold it. Now he loves it.
Funny what a extra pound of wood will do.
