I have two T3 lt ss, a 25/06 and a 300 short and am very happy with both. In fact, I enjoy shooting them both, albeit the 25 more than the 300. Today at the range, a buddy was having a hard time sighting in his T3 ss in 308. He asked me to give it a shot and man did that gun kick. I have never shot a 308 that kicked like this one. Has anyone else had this experience? He later complained about the kick and I of course told him that i was thinking the same thing.
