Speaking of .308s.

I was at my cabin this last weekend, and among other things, I needed to zero a new scope I had bolted up to my old Tikka T3 Varmint .308.

This is the same gun shown with the 2 Muley bucks. When I got my TRG .308, I had the T3 Varmint barrel trimmed back to an even 20"s and installed a brake, when not using a suppressor.

For those who may not know, Tikka used to import T3 Varmint models in .308s in the very early 2000s. Then they dropped it, and came out with "tactical models, CTR models" etc, and added about 300 bucks to the price of the basic varmint .308. I was fortunate in that I had picked up a .308 Varmint way back then.

Long story short, I took off a fixed 10X USO (MOA) and stuck on an SWFA 3-15 MIL/MIL.

I used the same Scenar/Varget load I use on the skinny barrel T3s that my daughter and I each use, The Scenar/Varget/Tikka/Sako combo seems to be one of those combos that just works.

After getting it on paper at 50, then 100, I made a final correction and shot a single 3 shot group (prone from the porch).

The Tikka .308s tend to make me look better than I really am. :)

The Tikka .308 strikes again!
