    I’m glad to see the sporter re-introduced.
    However, I feel the T3 action as too large for the .223.
    It would be exceptional, if Tikka would also re- indroduce the smaller action size implemented in their previous iteration of this model.

    It would enhance the actions rigidity.

    I would also like to see Tikka sell their Battue in the States too,
    it’s a knock-out!

    Anyhow, Tikka is a great rifle.

    In webpage of Tikka you could found the T3 sporter in CALIBER 222 REM, 223 REM, 6.5×55 SE, 260 REM, & 308 WIN


  • Per the SHOT Show flyer and the PDF available at, this rifle is also available in .308.

    I own the previous model Tikka Sporter from the late 1990’s – absolutely great rifle for the price.

    I’m looking to purchase a pack hunting rife I will be hunting in the Yukon
    Dall sheep and a possible grizzly is the Tikka T-3 lite 300wsm Stainless a good chose?
    And what grain would you use for grizzly.
