New Tikka T3

10211 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Sus Scrofa
New here. New shooter. Bought a new Tikka T3. Am I in the right topic? Cleaning and care part of training?

Question: what do I really need for a cleaning kit? Premade kit? Build my own? Full rod, compact pieced rod, does it matter? What jags? Brushes?

Found a lot of stuff out there. Some good but some I'm sure is junk. Don't want to risk damaging my barrel or anything. Don't want it exploding on me.

Thanks everyone!

Great rifle. I have a T3 hunter in 270WSM that is superbly accurate. I think a one piece rod and cleaning from the breech end of the rifle will serve you well. A kit isn't necessary at all and your thoughts on cleaning may change over time. The bore on my T3 is very smooth and easy to clean. If you are like most of us you will end up with a cornucopia of cleaning supplies over time.

Happy shooting
