The Tikka® T3 Lite Bolt-Action Rifle is an innovative, well designed, lightweight hunting rifle, that shoots accurately and functions flawlessly. The T3 Lite uses a 2-lug bolt with a 75° lift that cycles smooth as silk. The 75° bolt lift aids in keeping hand and gloves away from the scope and speeds the cycling process. The bolt disassembles quickly by hand into four major components; it has a recessed face, a plunger ejector, and a Sako extractor. A single stage adjustable trigger breaks crisp and clean, allowing hunters to make quick, accurate shots under field conditions. The coldhammer-forged stainless steel barrel, free floated to the synthetic stock, provides superb accuracy and maintains its point-of-aim in changing weather conditions. A single column polymer magazine feeds reliably, and facilitates in loading and unloading the rifle. The well-designed, ergonomic stock and sleek receiver make the T3 Lite easy to carry and quick handling. The Tikka T3 Lite Bolt-Action Rifle features integral rails on the top of the receiver that accept Optilock™ bases & rings, and is also drilled and tapped for Weaver-type bases.

Fantastic hunting rifle I purchased this rifle in 2007 in a 270 wsm after hunting with a buddies sako finnlight in the same caliber. Since I'm not made of gold I bought it in a Tikka t3 light stainless. Topped it with a bushnell 3200 3x9 50mm firefly scope and have had great success with that combination. It has accounted for many, many one shot kills on deer and elk. All the way out to 458 yards. I adjusted the trigger to 2lbs and it breaks cleanly every time. Groups under 3/4 inch are normal with my handloads. Smoothest bolt action I have ever handled. The only drawback I have found is the magazine has to be taken out to reload. Which is not a huge deal as the first shot is often the only shot you'll need. A simple change of recoil pads has also made shooting it much more pleasant. Since purchasing this rifle my other rifles have been collecting dust. I have been hard pressed to justify purchasing another rifle since this one performs so well in all situations. But I have three growing sons so there is at least three more tikkas to add to the closet. July 7, 2014
Great rifle! This Tikka T3 Lite SS in .308 shoots great! I had read that it kicked a lot so I fitted it with a precision fit recoil pad before ever taking it to the range. That was a good idea because at only 6.18 lbs, with the stock hard, solid rubber recoil pad it could have been painful to shoot more than a few rounds at a time. (Another shooter with the same rifle at the range that day bore witness to that fact.) However, I ran 50 rounds through this rifle in one range session and had/have no discomfort at all. That said, this rifle shot great, even with the cheap scope I put on it. Once I got it dialed in, the Tikka T3 SS easily met the manufacturer's claim of 3 rounds within 1 moa at 100 yards numerous times!!!!!! The bolt works as smoothly as any I've used and removes very easily for cleaning. The trigger is crisp with NO play. Below is my Tikka T3 SS in .308 and my best group of many that day at 100 yards. (Those are 1 inch squares-1 moa at 100 yards) Not too bad for a blind man who hasn't shot a high powered rifle in over 10 years!!!! May 9, 2014
Nicknamed it "The Freezer Stuffer" I received this gun as a birthday gift before deer season. I've been hunting for whitetail in south Carolina and have killed a buck and a doe so far with the gun. Both deer I shot dropped, and died right where I shot them. The gun has great accuracy and excellent power. The trigger has a very light pull which I LOVE. The bolt is the smoothest I have personally every operated. I could not be happier with this gun! November 29, 2013
Good deer rifle This is my first hunting rifle so I don't have anything to compare it to. I bought it because of the price point and a recommendation from the sales associate. It has excellent great shot placement (groups within 1 inch at 100 yards). I have taken 2 deer with this rifle and it was right on target. My only complaint is the larger scope cap won't fit. I don't know if its because the gun doesn't taper enough for the cap to fit or the setup wasn't done properly by BassPro. I tried to get flip up caps but they won't fit either. So I had to file the larger cap to get it to almost fit. The barrel does scuff up pretty easily if bumped on a metal climbing stand but the scuffs don't bother me too much. November 14, 2012

A: 
Yes, a lot of people use them for bear. If you were going coastal bear hunting you might want something bigger. But the .270 is perfectly capable of taking them. There was a video shot in africa where all the animals were taken using a 270 WSM.

A: 
I have looked at many sites for more information about the T3 Lite .270 WIN Rifle. I found out that it's more for whitetails and has more recoil than it's weight itself. The pad it has is hard plastic with thin layer of rubber on end of stock. I personally don't think the gun is recommended to use against bears and if you do buy the gun, you should buy a thicker rubber stock to protect your arm from recoil.
