The Tikka Rifle- How to set it up, break it in and shoot straight.

Introducing the Practical Guide- Video Series!

Hi all, we have finally started our new video learning series and have kicked off with a very important how-to video based on the Tikka rifle. This information can also be applied to any of the modern light weight rifles with regards to the break in and shooting process, but in this instance we have provided specific and vital info for Tikka owners (also applies to the Sako A7).

Hosted on Vimeo via 30 day rental, this tutorial is packed full of useful information and shows the process as it happened so that you can watch the progress of this rifle and put these methods into practice.

From Zero To Hero...

Learn how to take a Tikka rifle "out of the box" and obtain best possible accuracy in this simple yet crucial process.

Cutting through the rubbish taught by current shooting schools, this hands on how-to video is for both new and experienced shooters. The results speak for themselves.

Hosted by Nathan Foster, this video based on his popular book series covers the preliminary rifle set up, the barrel break in process and basic shooting technique, all filmed in live format.

These methods can be used with any rifle design with regards to the barrel break in process and test shooting, however this tutorial offers specific help for Tikka owners.

This video WILL teach you what you need to know in order to get the best out of your rifle.

Learn how to set up and shoot the Tikka- before you decide whether it needs bedding or 'only shoots with certain hand loads'.

Learn how to break in your rifle barrel based on its individual needs- not some generic process.

Learn the rules of light weight rifle shooting technique- before you break the rules.

I found this very informative. I have read Nathan's books but seeing the actual process really instilled the principles as I am more a visual learner.

Look forward to the next instalment
