She has been invited on a hunt for Mule Deer hunt next fall with me. A very good chance to shoot a nice buck.
She has a Tikka T3 Stainless with Leupold VX-3 w/ a B&C Reticle & a Limbsaver pad in 300 WSM
. She really likes the gun (Birthday present from Dad in college).
She has experience shooting my 300WM with 150gr bullets and shot it once with 180gr and DIDN'T like the 180s. She is also picky about the accuracy of the gun, for confidence with her first few hunts. The Tikka does a great job shooting 180s but is less accurate with 165/150s.
I've tried(150gr.): Accubonds, Sciroccos, SST's; (165's): Accubond, Sierra HP Gamekings.
Out of all of those the HP Gamekings shot well but at low velocities in the gun; 2820fps.
Because of the Magazine and throat I can't come close to the lands.
ANY THOUGHT WOULD HELP. I'd like to get this thing shooting so we can spend the year shooting balloons and metal.
PLEASE!!!! Any info would help!.....For her sake.
