Sako 85 Finnlight in 300 win mag - Thoughts on ammo

Just purchased a Finnlight in 300 win mag this week. Looking for thoughts on what ammo has worked well with this gun and caliber. I'm not a reloader but I will be using premium factory loads. Thanks in advance for the input.

Federal Trophy Copper in 180g...

I have a Sako 85 Finnlight Stainless Stalker .300 win mag and have .5" @ 100 yards in 2 shots and 1.5" @ 200 yards within 3 shots..all said 5 rounds fired...I've put in some other posts about it...as for the field performance? Cow moose approx 255 yards, one shot, surreal power.

+1 on the federal rounds... I reload everything and almost consider it a curse to use factories, but if I had to I'd probably go with them if the pill I wanted to shoot was loaded by them.
