View Full Version : .338 Winchester fodder.

Howdy all. I just picked up a Tikka 338 Winchester Magnum today. I was wondering if anyone here had any good recipes? If anybody here is piloting a Tikka .338 MAg I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

I am nuts about Tikkas, I don't have a 338 but I have a 30-06, a 243, and a 204 all Varmint Stainless models.
I have had super luck with the Nosler Accubond in the 30 and 243 cal Tikkas. Give it a try in your rifle.
The 165 Grain .308 Accubond shoots well enough out of my 30-06 to shoot in 1000 yard competition.

I have a tikka t3 in .300 win mag. I don't reload and have shot several commercial loads and it seems to like nosler partitions.

Well thank you for the input Edelweiss and buckbull. I appreciate it. I'm up to 4 Tikkas now.The first was a 22/250 in stainless.
It's gone now,but I've picked up a couple more the last while back.I'll be posting a little on them here later. Pretty darn good rifles and affordable too. Pretty darn good at any price actually. It's good to hear from a couple T3 folks.

Bell and Carlson is making medalist stocks for the T3 now!
Probably won't improve accuracy too much on the already great T3, but they sure have a nice feel to them.

I'll likely try one of the B&C stocks on the 338 just because I have one on my 300 RUM,and like the feel of it. I honestly like the T3 factory stock. It's not as "free floated" as I usually like to see a stock,but it aint bad either.

I have a Manners stock on my my 6.5x47 rebarreled Tikka, I recommend it whole heartedly. It is good enough that eventually all my rifles will wear Manners stocks.

Wouldn't happen to have a pic or two would you?
