Tikka T3X Stainless Lite

Recommended Posts

Fancy the above in 204 or 223 (1:12). I want to use 40 Vmax and was wondering if the 204 has any significant speed advantage given that both have a 20" barrel?

I was of the opinion that the 204 had to have a minimum 24' barrel in order to get the best out of it.

I'm getting around 3500-3600 fps with 40grain .204 norma out of a 20" T3x.

I get 3750 with a 32 grain 204... I believe all tikka rifles have the same barrel length even in the super varmint....tack driver....I feel sometimes I should have got something with the longer barrel to get more speed...that said it's more accurate than I am so all is good
