    Tikka T3x safety

    Yeah but having to take off the safety to unload the rifle sucks. What if you drop it in the process from your treestand? This seems like a really poor design. I have no idea why Tikka would not include a 3 position safety......

    Tikka T3x safety

    Can you only engage the safety while the rifle is loaded and in the firing position? If so how come? Seems like a better system to be able to engage the safety and still load/unload etc, all the time while the safety is permanently engaged???

    Tikka T3x Lite with a muzzle thread

    I silencer could also be an option. Just a pity they are so damn expensive. Has anyone else seen these pre-threaded Tikkas?

    Tikka T3x Lite with a muzzle thread

    I know I asked this question a few days ago. Not sure if I missed it or if this is new, but I found a T3x with a muzzle thread in a .308. Some questions about muzzles. I noticed that Tikka shortens the barrel by 2.4 inches to account for a muzzle. 1) What effect does this have on what...

    Will a .243 do more meat damage than a .308?

    It seems like a well placed high shoulder shot drops the a deer in in tracks. Quick dispatch, less suffering, no problems with recovery etc. Just curious though about meat damage vs the heart/lungs shot.

    About bullet placement. Does the high shoulder shot damage meat?

    How do you deal with ticks?

    Permethrin X 1000. BUT A WARNING. Permethrin is highly lethal to fish. DO NOT cross streams or get boots in ponds etc. Be very careful of this. DO NOT USE Permethrin on your waders.....

    Will a .243 do more meat damage than a .308?

    Mounting scope to rifle?

    Not that it matters much, but for aesthetics, should you try match the rings color to the barrel, or the scope? I'm guessing the scope?

    Will a .243 do more meat damage than a .308?

    If you keep ALL other variables constant (shot placement, same manufacturer, same brand etc), will the .243 do more meat damage because of it's higher velocity? Thanks.

    Is parallax error a big deal while hunting?

    I was looking at getting the Leupold VX-3i, but I dont think this scope has an adjustment for parallax error right? Is this a big deal? Is it even needed in a hunting situation (< 200 yards). Thanks.

    Mounting scope to rifle?

    Ah thanks. So yeah, looks like I will need the base and the rings then to fit on the standard Tikka rail. But I assume it also depends on my size of scope because there are a bunch of different rings too. I'm looking at a Leopold VX-3i, 4.5-14, 40mm Duplex, to attach to a Tikka T3x...
