I posted this target under mounts and bases because of the discussion on LW Talleys vs Dednutz but I guess I'll share my first time experience with this rifle here too.
 
 
 
I broke the rifle in at 50 yrds cleaning between shots, then moved out to 100 yrds and fired groups A throught B, cleaning between groups.  Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this rifle and it seems to love cheap Remington Core-lokts.

That looks very good. A 5 shot grouping will be nice to look at as well. Next time you are out at the range send 5 down and show us. But the rifle seems to shoot very well.

Good stuff.  You gotta like it when your rifle likes cheap, effective and commonly available ammo.  Was that a Tikka T3 or another model?

Thanks guys.  Its a T3 stainless shooting off a Caldwell Rock BR.  I mounted the 40mm scope using Dednutz lows, perfect fit, very impressed with the strenght and alignment.  For what its worth, the Wheeler alignment bars were dead-on point to point.  We'll see how they will hold up

Hey Texas Photog, ever hear of Briley Outfitters in San Angelo?  We are heading there in December.

I'm not familiar with Briley Outfitters, but that doesn't mean anything.  In Texas I hunt my own land or that of family and friends, so I have no experience with Texas outfitters.  That said I went dove hunting just south of San Angelo opening weekend.  There's a lot of game in that part of the state; that should be a fun hunt.  Good luck!
