Tikka T3 Lite 243win=very happy

I am very happy with the way my new tikka shot. I finally received my Mueller Tac II 3-10X44 and got everything mounted up in the dednutz game reaper mount and headed outside. I bore sighted it and then first shot was 2" low at 100 yards. Took the scope up 8 clicks and the next shot was dead center, 3rd one to the right was my fault as I jerked the trigger. Shots 4, 5, and 6 all landed in the bullseye making a nice 1/2" group. Load consists of a 75 grain v-max, 45.2 grains of IMR 4350, Remington brass and CCI 200 primer. I loaded them a little longer to 2.70" C.O.L and they produced 3200 FPS.

I've got the blued model, very satisfied as well. If you would like to trade data for pet loads, let me know. I've got a 70gr and 55gr ballistic tip load, and a so-so load for 85gr TSX. Interested in a tight grouping 100 gr soft point load...

PM me if you want....

Loader loft I think I sent you a PM but I'm not sure if it went through.
What load are you having luck with in your Tikka with the 55 grain bullet?
