I have a tikka tac 300WM I set my bullet length to max length of the mag. which is the recommend length in the reloading manual.That is the only draw back of this rifle.I put on a 4.5 by 16 50mm Bushnell and a muzzle brake
from tikka, rifle weighs in a 11.2lb with no ammo. very accurate rifle 5 rounds in 3 holes half in. sand bag off the hood of my truck.With out the muzzle brake I couldn:t see the longrange coyotes shots recoles to the right.Recole is very managable with out brake,just wanted it to see the hit. A z plex scope wood be better or adj turrants, truly a longrange rifle.
