Hey guys..I just wanted to share with you all my results from a loooong road of testing loads for my gun. I just bought this used tikka t3 from a guy. Its the 300 wsm
stainless. The barrel was not properly broke in but i bought it anyways. I worked for over a month with accubonds and dif powders tryin to get a good group. My best was 1 inch at 100 yds.. I recently switched to a Hornady 180 Gr SST and Im very impressed with the results. I just started reloading 2 months ago and i have been hooked ever since! There is so much to learn, Many of you guys havre answerd my questions and helped me . So i figured i would post my results. I Plan on sending this balistic data out to Kenton Insudsties and havbing them make me a turret for my leupold. I have been in a rush to find a load because i need to get the cap made in time for my elk hunt this october... I have heard mixed reviews about the SST. But at this point im going with what shoots straight. I have NEVER shot groups this tight and im about on cloud 9.. I finally found a shooter! tell me what you guys think... in my opinon... its not to bad for a used little carry gun. All shots were at 100 yds. and both powders shoot about 2900FPS. I chronoed each shot from both powders and each shot was within 25 FPS of eachother.
