    The T3x comes in 1:12 and 1:8 according to their website. I found references to the same twist rates for the T3 - but that's all, references from forums, etc.

    Mine is 1 in 8.
    I know for sure that there is another twist rate option, probably is 1 in 12 as GooseB says

    Definitely come in both 12" and 8" twist variants. It was stamped on the barrel of my old T3 Tac.

    My tikka t3x lite is 1:12. It shoots 55gr very well and I haven't tried anything heavier.

    would 55g be close to the limit for 1:12 ?

    Yeah I think everything over 60gr is too heavy to stabilise for the 1:12

    What distances are you planning on shooting to?

    young lad will be foxing, just point shoot, no dialing in etc, probably going with 8*56i scope too.

    Either twist rate will be grand and will shoot the most common bullet weights such as 55gr and 50gr. I'm very pleased with my one, fine rifle and affordable.
