have one in 7mm-08. As Rob said, already lightweight. I did not like the hollow plastic stock on mine though, so I replaced it with a Boyd's laminated one. Smoothest push feed action I've ever owned. Spare mag IS pricey, and the gun ( at least mine) has one less capacity than most clip type mags, but that is no big deal.
I have never owned a Tikka but have shot plenty of them and borrowed a 30-06 in Colorado one year. Killed a bull elk with that 06 at over 300 yards. LOVE the accuracy. I am not a big fan of the stocks layout. The grip is way to tight for my liking.
Just like the others have said. Mine is a t3 hunter in 308. Love the accuracey! Even with quality factory ammo ( i choose black hills) its slightly less then MOA at 300 yards. Its also light weight and the trigger is friggin awesome for factory. Con would be the plastic bottom parts like the trigger gaurd. Im sure the plastic will handle almost anything i dish out but still it doesnt feel right. Fit and finish are darn good. The scope base mounting holes on mine came filled with plastic caps with no screw head on them. What a pain to remove! Just a small brass punch and a light tap will knock them out and then clean the threads out well and you will be good 2 go. I will buy more for sure. Maybe one in the t3 varmint model.
Excellent rifles I have owned at least 8
PROS: accurate, lite, smooth, great triggers
CONS: your first Tikka leads to buying others, you won't be interested in many other factory rifles other than Sako or tikka.
