Tikka T3 270 WSM velocities?????

I am considering a tikka t3 in a 270 wsm and have heard tikkas do not maintain the same velocities in the WSM as other manufactures due to freebore so i am wondering what kind of velocity some of you guys are getting?

I want my cases to lats more then 2-3 firing so I don't go over the manual max and get ruffly:

130gr - 3300fps
140gr - 3200fps
150gr - 3100fps

W780 for 130 and 140.
H1000 for the 150.

All producing sub 3/4 MOA easily.

MagPro as the reputation to produce high velocity but I never tried it.

Good luck

Magpro is a bad powder for use with fed primers, so if you try that one stay away from fed primers. We've had a number of rifles show this tendancy and I even talked with one of the techs at Sierra about it. He said another primer should be fine (ie. win or cci) but the powder was already destined for file 13.
