Tikka T3x Varmint and 270 Winchester Short Magnum Combination
The Tikka T3x Varmint chambered in the relatively new 270 Winchester Short Magnum Caliber, is a great all round rifle. The .277 projectiles has proven itself from long range gong shoots to a great caliber for short to longer distance hunting. The range of bullets that seem to be the most popular is in the 130 to 150 grain range. The flat trajectories with a muzzle velocity around the 2850 to 3100 ft/s mark, makes this a useful rifle for hunting medium to larger bodied antelope. The ability of the 270 Winchester Short Magnum Caliber to achieve good velocity with moderate recoil and still deliver knock down power on larger bodied animals, makes it a great choice for competition shooters and hunters alike.

Tikka T3x 270 Winchester Short Magnum Varmint Features

New recoil pad
The new Tikka T3x models come with a new recoil pad technology that reduces the impact of recoil on the shooter. The new robust pad allows you to fully concentrate on the accuracy of your shots.
Stock Noise Reduction
The new Tikka T3x synthetic stocks now have a foam insert within the interior of the rear stock which lowers the stock-generated noise and can help you keep your target in sight. Not available for models with an adjustable cheek piece.
Redesigned ejection port
The new Tikka T3x receiver introduces a widened angular ejection port that makes it easier to feed one cartridge at a time.
Improved Rail Attachment
Always keep the target in your sight. The T3x models have extra screw placements on top of the receiver so that you can robustly attach a picatinny rail – even when using larger scopes.
Metallic Bolt Shroud
Robustness and quality go hand in hand. Metallic bolt shroud covers and shields the rear of the bolt body and the firing pin.
Steel Recoil Lug
This extra-strong lug has minimal deformation – even with larger calibers. Compared to aluminium, the steel lug doesn’t have strong imprinting qualities that would cause deformation when larger calibers are used.
