Lowlight from Sniper's Hide looks at the Tikka Tac A1. We shot this rifle over a period of several months, to include at our local match. I found the factory barrel to be on the slow side so we upgraded it to a Bartlein Barrel.
The factory Tikka Barrel chronographed at 2710fps with factor Prime Ammo. The new Left Hand Gain Twist Barrel from Bartlein was measured at 2825fps. The new barrel is in fact 2" shorter than the factory barrel. A 115fps muzzle velocity gain was worth the upgrade alone.
We really like the Tikka Platform as a base precision rifle.
