Mounting a scope on a Tikka T3 Laminated Stainless in 300 WSM and would like to know if anyone has any input or experience with the bell clearance. I have found no actual information on the outside diameter of the bell.

Rings:  Stainless Warne Mediums mounted in the Tikka groove.

Looking at the Sightron Big Sky  4-16X42 with AO

Edit:  Sightron's website states 2.2" with AO and 1.99 without AO

Is there a chart that shows the scope center line vs. the barrel taper for different gun manufacturers?

Again Thanks

On that rifle, with that scope, youa re fine.  I have a Zeiss Conquest on a T3  with Warne and Medium will not be a problem. 


Tikka makes good guns, best deal going.  Mine is a 300WM and it has killed a few hogs in its time.
