Tikka out of the box accuracy is truely fantastic. My buddy and I both got new Tikka 243 rifles...mine in wood and blue, his in synthetic and stainless. Both of us shooting out of the box ammo: Winchester Supreme 55 gn. Hornady 58 gn, and Federal 80 gn. I shoot 1 inch groups , but he being alittle better shot shoots 3 shot groups that touch each other. I suppose there are a lot of you that can shoot this kind of group . . . but I am impressed with these rifles out of the box.
