Hence the reason I like the idea of a 270WSM.

Re: Tikka T3 .270WSM LR hunting machine ideas

Put a good scope and mount on your Tikka. Adjust the trigger to 2lbs. Load some Norma brass with 150 grain Bergers and RL22 to 3175 fps and shoot it @1000. I bet it is capable of sub moa for 3 shots @1000 as it sits.

Tikka's have a well earned reputation for out of the box accuracy and the 270WSM cartridge has the same.

I recently added a Weatherby Vanguard in 270WSM to my stable. I have about 70 rounds through it so far and I think it may be the most accurate sporter weight hunting rifle I have owned. So far it has shot multiple groups in the .2's and one .1 group. At 1000yds it is a solid .7moa and with some more attention on my part I think it is capable of even better.

I did load development for a Sako A7 and Tikka in 270WSM. Both of them shot lights out right out of the gate. Great factory triggers and barrels on both.

Be forewarned, shooting long range is extremely addictive. Welcome!

Re: Tikka T3 .270WSM LR hunting machine ideas

I was planning on loading 150 bergers with RL-17. They say rL-17 is made for short mags. Do you disagree. How many grains should i work up from. Im also worried about bergers retaining there weight as a hunting bullet, i have heard stories of the bullets grenading.

I was just looking at the ballistics for the 150gr vs 169.5gr for the 270 wsm. I just thought I would share what I found.

Re: Tikka T3 .270WSM LR hunting machine ideas

Thanks, great info.

I thought i would let you guys know what i have planned and you could give me some input, as im new to all of this. Long range elk and deer rifle.

Rifle: .270 WSM, Manners MCS-SL stock, Hart 26" 1-10" twist 4 groove barrel. All gunsmithing possibly done by Hart as well. Leupold VX-3 kenton industries LR hunter turrets. Deadnutz scope mount.

Ammo: 140/150 gr berger hunting VLD or 140gr accubond. Rl-17/19/22?????. Wolf primers. Norma brass. Not sure how many grains to work up from.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Wolf primers have worked the best for me. I know the RL17 will be your fastest load. I would be surprised if it wasn't.
