    Tikka T3x 6.5 PRC

    I just got this back last week & took it up the range yesterday in the wind.



    It is an ex 300 Win Mag T3x with a T3 stock & 24" #RM Bartlein 1-8 barrel with 5/8x24 thread



    I put one of my suppressors on it for load development.



    I got a reamer to see how the 6.5 PRC would preform & so far I'm pretty impressed I hope the 300 PRC I have coming is the same



    It shoots the Hornady ammunition pretty well too



    It has fired a total of 27 rounds & is for sale

    that's a good hustle for 150 grains. I like the look of the 300 PRC too.

    Hey Greg, do you personally shoot all these groups prone or off a bench? Or are the rifles locked in a setup like you muzzle break testing? Excellent looking rigs, and performance regardless..

    Off a bench on a bit of plywood with a spiked bi-pod & soft rear bag



    I've just always done it like that, could close the groups up by using a proper rest or sand bags up the front.

    I always zero my hunting rifles prone off the bipod in the dirt or grass because its closest to how they get used in the field

    What would you expect from one of these in a 22" barrel.
    I would love a 6.5 that would do 3000fps from a 20" with 143ELDX.
    As my .260 does 2860fps so would need to be 3000fps to be an improvement.
