I can touch the lands & still have room for them to fit the magazine. First loads I backed them off .30 Going to try them there, hope they work LOL

Right on... I ran out of magazine length before I got near the lands with mine and 140 gr. Ballistic tips...

I'd like to try some 150 gr, LR Accubonds and see if I can get them to shoot... .625 BC fills a big gap in .277 offerings...

I'd bet you can get most any bullets to shoot in these Tikka's... By far the easiest rifle I have loaded for... So far everything I feed it is sub MOA...

How far were you shooting you're ladder test?

Man that sucks... It's hard for me to find a place for longer yardage as well but 200 is hard for that test.. I just shot one at a little under 400 and the POI's were still a little too close to see what was really going on...
