Default Tikka 6.5x55

I bought the T3X stainless synthetic for the climate here on the West Coast and the price point was good.
It shoots so well that guys actually think Iím a good shot.

I feel that the only downside of the T3x is the substantial number of aftermarket parts and upgrades available.

While this is certainly true in some chamberings, it isn't true across the board. Especially since Tikka introduced the M+ magazines.

But I have found the tikkas not to shoot any better than any of the other rifles at a similar price point there chambered long and have short mag so you can never load the rounds out to the lands cause the mags limit your length one length action and plastic junk mags.

The mags are fairly easy to modify, I did one in under an hour with no experience. You can make them as long as you want. Still plastic though.

Tikka, Wby or CZ are all excellent rifles around that price point - all will shoot accurately and all have a few things people are annoyed with, but all are simple fixes, the trigger on the vanguard is mediocre at best (although the new ones are better), the stock on the Tikka will kick you like a mule and you are liable to get a flinch ..... you get the idea.

Pick one up, shoulder it, cycle it, and take the one home that fits or suits you best. You can fix the minor annoyances. All good choices.
