Tikka "T1x MTR" .17HMR Rifle (with accuracy testing)

  • Published on Sep 17, 2018
  • The Tikka T1x MTR rifle is available in 17HMR and 22LR. It is a typical Tikka, smooth action, crisp trigger and accurate. I managed a .6" 10-shot group @ 50 yards with Hornady 17gr V-Max ammo.

    I bought a T3x Hunter in 30-06 at the beginning of November 2019. The only mod I did was glass bedding it. I went to the range and sited it in on Friday November 15th and got a whitetail buck the day after. It is extremely accurate. I'm looking at the T1x in 17HMR for wolves and coyotes. I'm hoping the T1x is as good as my T3x. Can't wait! Good review, really like your videos!

    The budget box CCI A17 poly tip ammo works best i find. It's slightly quicker by 100fps than most other ammo. Maybe try next time

    Hate to say but both my CZ 452 Varmints (one is .22 lr and one .17 hmr), shoot better groups than this, sorry Tikka, sticking with CZ.

    Again Ozzie, excellent review. You've explained & shown everything I need to know.
    I'm currently looking to buy one of my gun loving daughters a rimfire &, I've been looking intensely for good info pact reviews because I have no other option cause I don't own them. Your reviews are very much appreciated. I know you put a lot of time & effort into these reviews so people like me can benefit.
    Thank You mate.

    G'day mate👍🏻 I was just wondering, when you changed the stocks around. What did you do with the piece of plastic that wedges in between the barrel and stock? Can you remove the plastic plate and have a free float barrel? Regards Jim

    • Flemo Aus
      Flemo Aus 11 months ago +1

      Mate I have a T1x 22lr the wedge does not touch the barrel on my rifle you can slide paper along it no problem but you can remove that wedge if you don't like it, I have a T3x 223 but I haven't tried swapping the stocks yet.

  • andrew moroney
    andrew moroney Year ago +2

    Hello. Thanks for your review, I really enjoyed it, as did I also enjoy your review of the Tikka T3x Tac A1... As you have experienced both, I was wondering what your thoughts would be on a rifle with with T1x action mounted in the T3x Tac A1 chassis?
    I ask because I have recently got my licence and am about to purchase my first rifle. I don't want to start with the t3x as I anticipate I will need to send many, many rounds downrange each visit to the range for the first 12-24 months while I learn to shoot and hone my skills, and 22lr ammo is far cheaper. Plus with far less power I thought it may be good to work on learning about wind and reading wind at long distances for a 22 ie 300m? I thought Tikka 22 in the T3x Tac A1 chassis would let me get used to the ergonomics, the trigger etc, and when ready I can swap the action to something like a 308 or 6.5mm. Once I move past the 22 I can put its action into a cheaper chassis so it doesn't go to waste.
    I'd really appreciate your thoughts on this. Thankyou

  • NJMS EDC & Outdoors

    Do you know if the T3X/T1X stock will take a T3 rifle (10yrs old). Or vice versa. Thinking about a new 223rem replacement but I've a custom thumbhole stock for my current T3 Lite.

    Federal generally does better from my experience, I suspect this is a shooter issue. That said, seems accuracy of this rifle is somewhat worse than CZ /452/455. Those sure are expensive there thought, about twice as much as in the states.

  • Cheyne Hosking
    Cheyne Hosking Year ago +3

    Hi there Ozzie. Ive been shooting the 17HMR for years and am happy for several reasons. My question...I'm wondering if you used a quick run through of a bore snake or some kind of clean between all your testing and comparison of ammo? I find my 17HMR likes the CCI but will get dirty pretty quick, so Im meticulous for cleaning as every little bit improves accuracy. Any thoughts?

    • Kevin Ryan

  • Mat M
    Mat M Year ago +1

    Hi ozzie regarding the 17hmr calibre have you noticed any accuracy drop off due to fouling? Have read that they tend to foul quickly and accuracy drops off compared to 22lr and 22mag. Great reviews cheers 👍

  • Peter Miller
    Peter Miller Year ago +1

    Another honest & informative review thanks Ozzie. As for those that rubbish the 17 hmr, it is brilliant for small game at longer distances & far outshines the 22 wmr for accuracy & range in calm conditions. I have heard that 17hmr ammo made today is not as good as it was initially ( less precision) but unsure if this is true. Keep up the great reviews please Ozzie.

      Josh Talbot well I also have both and the T1X has a way better trigger and smoother bolt action. So if you really do have a Tikka also you would know there is no comparison

    • Josh Talbot
      Josh Talbot Year ago

      I have both and the cz it leaps and bounds better of a deal. Nicer action, better fit and finish and a nice peace of wood instead of hollow plastic. No plastic on a 455/452

    17 as a calibre is rubbish unless its 17 rem drivin those lil pills at 4000 plus fps. Even then , its just a light little flat laser blaster.
    22 has more options

    Finally -- nice to see a review on this rifle. I would expect the groups to tighten up a bit after you put a few hundred rounds down the pipe. Did you clean before shooting? AND, I may have missed it, but I did not hear anything about the the trigger. Was it light, heavy, crisp, creepy? Any comment you could give us on the trigger would be appreciated.

      Paul Davies I laugh when I read comments like this because it shows how little experience you’ve had in the shooting world here in Australia. If you had you’d realise that the majority of ranges here are measured in yards and that 99% of ammo is from the States so it has measurements in imperial, so this is why when it comes to shooting I use yards and measure group sizes in inches (moa).

    Retiring my old Brno to the back rack soon I guess since I have been waiting eagerly for these to become available since the Shot Show anouncement. If NRL22- Precision Rimfire Competitions take off in Australia these will have to be a front runner due to the ton of stock option already available and the ability to mount full size optics.

      Just bought the T1X in 17hmr and both myself and my 14 year old son are shooting sub .5” groups at 100 yds using Hornady Vmax, CCI Gamepoint and Remington Vmax. I was quite surprised to see such poor groupings in this video as the rifle is definitely capable of 1/2 moa.

      oliash92 Yeah I've owned two Anschütz 1515-16 22 mags. Both shot like stink. I used the 30gn v-max CCI loads in both and that's not far behind the 17hmr 20gn. Sold one to my brother and the other to a mate. Kick myself in the arse over that. I will get one of these Tikka's in 22mag when it comes out, apparently in about 12 months. I have a mate who has a 17hmr and it's good but I just like the 22magnum, that's all.

      Jay Mann the manual says the usual 3 shot MOA guarantee at 100 for centrefires and 50 for rimfires or 5 shots for varmint models. Either way the rifle definitely is sub moa for 3 or 5 shots at 50

    • Jai B
      Jai B Year ago +1

      17 is rubbish.. period
      Pills are just too light
      Unless your using a 17 rem and moving a 20gr pill at 4000 plus fps
      Then its somewhat useful
      But HmR is rubbish

    • JOSH Pittman
      JOSH Pittman Year ago +2

      MrDogsballs all about energy anything past 100 meter the 17 doesn’t have any. Sure it’s fast at close range but at about 150 meters the 22 mag is moving along a tad faster with much more energy. And the accuracy thing well I guess that depends on the gun and shooter

    • MrDogsballs
      MrDogsballs Year ago +1

      So it wouldn't be more accurate or have less drop @ 100m..Theres 2 areas it's already better than a magnum..not to mention accuracy at any distance in between..Dont get me wrong as i have a magnum now but i'm about to swap it for a 17hmr..

    • Jai B
      Jai B Year ago +2

      @JOSH Pittman
      My issue josh with it is the light pills they dump the speed and energy so damn quick its not funny

    • JOSH Pittman
      JOSH Pittman Year ago +1

      In the rifle market or at least here in the United States everybody wants the biggest fastest thing out. Just because it’s new and faster doesn’t mean it’s more efficient and accurate. The 17hmr is a decent caliber for what it is but it will not do anything the 22mag can’t do better.

      I didnt doubt a headshot with a 17 would mate
      Ive heard thuds when my mate shot and the foxes ran off but mind you he was a notoriously shit shot anyway. Little calibres your shot placement needs to be good. His was definately NOT
      I just hate 17's mate im a hater.. haters gonna hate ay haha

      Jai B Foxes don’t run after being shot in the head with a 17 WSM. You’ll just have to trust me on that. 😂

    • Jai B
      Jai B Year ago

      Hey if the wsm works for you then cool its just a calibre i dont have much use for. I usually encounter dingoes foxes and pigs the odd hares up here in qld. So i cant go walking around with a pee shooter if i see something bigger than a hare or fox. But it might suite your needs and thats fine. My needs are diff :)
      All our hunting conditions will be different too i usually am on foot whereas you might be in a vehicle so having a few options in the ute wouldnt hurt. I got one body carrying more than one guns not an option.
      Happy hunting

    • Jai B
      Jai B Year ago

      @Dunk im saying i wont own a .17 anyday of the week lol
      Arent i making it clear i think its worthless
      A .22 will do the job at 17 ranges anyway with more pill options and less noise. I only pointed to the 17 rem because its the only 17 worth talking about in my oppinion. But its just an oppinion. As for range my longest shots are 301m with a .223 on a dingo and 273m on a fox. I usually dont take those long shots but i had to on the dingo it was having a go at a pony on the farm. As for the fox that was a 6.5x55 swede so i was confident in the rifles abilities as well as my own so i took the shot and it dropped on the spot.
      I got the 273m one on film if you wanna see it :)
      Also what you hunting with a 17? Rabbits.. foxes.. for foxes id use something bigger anyway so whats it good for.. hares and rabbits. Well so is a .22 makes less mess too if your interested in eating it. Ive seen my mate shoot at foxes with his 17 hmr heard the thud and the fox runs off... not cool. I use a 6.5x55 for everything now because overkill doesnt exist but underkill DOES

    • Dunk
      Dunk Year ago

      Jai B well honestly .. How far out are you trying to shoot with that tiny 17 pill ? Anything more than 200 yards with a well placed head shot and your not really starting to be an ethical hunter.. for up to 200 yards I will confendently use my wsm all day all night... it’s cheaper than even reloading for the 17 rem and certainly has a better life span on the barrel . I’d own a 222 or (223 which I do own ) before the 17 rem any day of the week. So in sticking with the original persons post statement .... Yes I would have an WSM over the HMR RIMFIRE any day !

      Reg Sparkes I think so Reg, I have only seen results of the Lithgow 17hmr sent to me by fans of the channel and the results were very tight so not sure if the Tikka is better or worse without having them side by side on the same day with the same Ammo and same optic

    • Reg Sparkes
