Long Range Shooting 101: Top 5 Rifles and Calibers for Survivalists

Tikka T3x TAC


Did we save the best for last? Lots of fanboys of this Finnish rifle manufacturer think so. Regardless, it’s very hard to argue that this rifle, which being a bit more expensive than others on this list, won’t at least make you feel like you’re shooting a helluva lot better.

To be fair, Tikka does offer other variations on the T3x that are under $1,000, but this one is certainly the most well-appointed version for driving tacks at 800 yards.

The tuned accuracy, heavy barrel, and smooth action are standard fare when it comes to Tikka. The adjustable check rest, fancy recoil pad, integrated picatinny rail, and 5/6 round magazine are what really set this rifle apart from the pack. The T3x is available in .223 Rem, .300 Win Mag, and .308 Win.

RETAIL: $1,550
