I was looking for a rifle to hunt deer with and came across a Tikka T3 hunter in 270 it's blued with the wood stock. The action is as smooth as butter and from what I have read and have been told, they are great shooters too. The gun is in the $600 range. Was thinking of a VX-3 or vortex optics. I'm just asking for a few opinions/experiences before I buy. I'm also looking at X-bolt but it's $200 more. Any thought?
