Tikka t3x or howa 1500 in 308

Recommended Posts

Hi lads just had my renewal back and been granted my slot for a 308. Has any one got any advise pros or cons on the above will deffo be in stainless and will be looking at 20” preferably. I’m leaning towards the tikka as I have the t3x in 243 and t1x in 17 HMR. Just local rfd can do a very good deal on the howa’s with beserka stock. Also best ammo for each rifle. 
much appreciated

With respect I think you’ve answered your own question 😉 things that get tarted up 

are not always the best 

ammo wise just for deer .?

Forget the berserk stock mate. Get another tikka. I personally never liked the fit of those unless shooting predominantly prone. Howas can be very accurate but a bit agricultural. I would definitely opt for T3 imo

Some like them some hate them I’ find them very comfortable as I smashed my thumb in a rugby accident and find it hard to get a good grip on standard stock. That’s what I tell my self lol 😂

Fair enough mate. But I would definitely have a good feel of both actions and triggers before deciding. But I think I know which way that will send you to the t3

I’m always open new opinions I currently use the sst in 243 in 95grn they are devastating rounds and very accurate but not always same in different calibres my mate will not shoot a tikka or hornaday as he hates them both lol

150 gr Sierra Gameking or Prohunter over 44 gr of N140 do the trick in my 308.

Funnily enough, a Howa 1500, not stainless though. It's quite heavy, but I honestly can't fault it performance wise. Had 3 bullet holes cloverleaf at 200 yards, and got 3 out of 4 on a 10" target at 465 yards. My 223 is a T3 which is a better made gun IMO but certainly no more accurate.

That’s great marksmanship Walshie at that range 👍

I did have a spotter calling the wind. He must have messed up with the 1 i missed. :laugh: Just shows the gun shoots where you point it.
