Tikka t3 as donor action

Well I got the Tikka 270wsm shooting as good as it can at 400(sub 2inch). so I am thinking of re-barreling it to 300wsm to get more B.C. and good 400+ . Yeah sub 2incn is pretty darn good for a factory gun , but being Pennsylvania Dutch makes me hard headed and never satisfied with good enough. In an earlier post I talked about re-barreling to just a better barrel and keeping it 270,but after checking out all the posts and doing a a** pot load of research (talking with my friend the smith and him telling me I just might be able to get a barrel from his brother and law who is starting a new manufacturing biz) and he is willing to build me a stock,I think why not switch calibers. Any thoughts? suggestions? help?
Thanks in advance
Craig

I'm interested in your factory barrel if you do rebarrel.

.277 Caliber Rifle Bullets Built for Accuracy | Matrix Ballistics

I think your 270wsm just needs some high BC bullet love and you will be very happy. Check out the 175gr VLD's at the bottom.

Re: Tikka t3 as donor action

The Matrix bullets have been the hands down most accurate bullet I've shot from a 270, not that they will for everyone but man, a BC of .650+ is excellent!!!

Re: Tikka t3 as donor action

Thank you guys for the heads up about matrix BULLETS. I will be ordering 200 of the 175'sin the near future. then I get to start working up a load that hopefully shoots them.
thanks again,
Craig
