    Crappy Tikka T3 barrels??

    These tikka barrels must be pretty average eh, as I see so many people getting around with T3's with replacement carbon wrapped barrels on them.

    I just shot one of my T3's today to see if my factory barrel might need replacing.

    Can you guys please look at my targets below and advise if you think i also need to replace the crappy factory barrel.

    Here's 3 shots on the 100 yard paper target, and 2 shots on steel at 400 yards.

    Is this any good? or do you think it's buggered and I should call Mr Hardy for a fancy carbon wrapped one?

    It's not that they don't shoot well, it's more that the light contour barrel and plastic stock are just so heavy.

    Don't show every body how well they shoot otherwise Beretta might run out.
