Those are high quality rifles, should be very accurate,As a tactical rifle, I think it would do well, If i'm not mistaken Tikka was/is owned by Sako...And Sako does'nt make inaccurate/mediocre quality rifles....

What Ralph said. Tikka's are highly rated and have quality where it counts.

Tikka's are a poor man's Sako, IMO.

Yes, you can say so, but the barrels are the same nowdays. 1/11" twist, very accurate, expect sub ½MOA. Very good rifles.

With Sako/ Tikka Optilock scope rings and high quality scope you can´t go wrong.

Not everybody can afford a Sako, and the Tika makes for a great substitute. They're perfectly capable rifles. I'm not so sure about a tactical role, unless you get the Sporter.

I have two. One in .308 and the other in 300WM.
I love them both.
