I'm considering one of these in .223 for a light varminter. Anybody got any comments or recommendations? Was looking at a Savage 16FSS, but the Tikka actually has an 8 twist (could shoot the 80 gr SMKs :crazy1: ). That's the fastest twist i've ever seen in a bolt action .223 :dancer01:

I don't know anything about Tikkas though.

Ask on Hunting.com, or at CSP forums. Many more guys who really know something about bolts. I gave up on them in the '70's.

not sure whether you've made your purchase or not but I own a tikka t3 in 25-06 and absolutely love it. The trigger is very smooth and after messing around with several loads it shoots extremely accurate. I've only shot mine out to 200 yards at paper and ussually have 2 rounds touching and the third within the distance of a dime. 200 yards is the longest target at my range. Hope I helped you out.
