Tikka 243 and 95gr bergers?

Was wondering if anyone has loaded any 95gr bergers in there factory tikka's? It's a 10 twist barrell and berger recommend's a 9 so will these stabilize?

I shot the HSM ammo using the VLD's out f my daughters Tikka 243 and they did fine. However; we shot them out of my buddies Marlin and they were not very good compared to the other loads, Hornady's were best.

I tried the 95g Bergers out of my Sako 10 twist and they didn't stabilize. The barrels on the sako and tikka are basically identical. I down loaded to the 90g Berger and they worked very well. Give them a shot instead.

I'm running the 87 VLD through my Tikka. I load them as long as the magazine allows. Bug holes.
