Pleased With My New Tikka T3X .222

Recommended Posts

as some will know I posted recently about the .222 and had some great feedback which encouraged me to follow my gut and get this calibre.


spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon shooting with a few different bullets to get used to the new rifle, it's my first centrefire just to add.


visited a local permission for a while yesterday evening and called for foxes to no avail.


I tried the same spot earlier this evening with the same result, so I relocated about 300 yards further along and started my remote fox caller and within a couple of minutes out dashed a young dog fox heading straight for the call, I was down and looking through the scope as he came to a stop I dropped him with a chest shot at about 100 yards. I used hornady 50g v max.


the land owner heard the shot and came out to have a look and was well pleased.


so far, I'm very happy with my new purchase as you can imagine.
