    I'm not sure what the optilock is but I just thought I'd let you know that I had some trouble with my rings that came with my 300wsm. The aluminum rings that are supplied by Tikka are not that good. You do have considerably less recoil with the 270 so that may be a non issue for you.

    I am very satisfied with my T3 lite...I have shot several .5" groups at 100, 1" groups at 200 and the limited 600 yard groups are also very impressive. To say it shoots .5MOA all day every day is pushing it, but it seems to keep most in there when I do my part. Good luck with yours!

    I think you made a good choice. On bullets, I would not rcommend the Partitions for long range shooting. Partitions have a soft lead point that is easily deformed and a poor BC. They would be good for ranges up to 200-300 yds, but beyond that I would recommend a different type of bullet with a poly tip. For your shooting, my choices would be...

    110 gr TTSX
    140 gr AB
    130 gr TSX
    130 gr Trophy Bonded Tip

    You might try all of them and pick the most accurate. The 110 TTSX has an MV of 3400 fps which will make it a very flat trajectory out to 500 yds, but it will be on the edge of it's killing potential at 500 yds.

    Here's Federals ballistic comparisons...

    Good shooting and good hunting
