    For the guys who have experience with Tikka rifles in 300 WM, I am looking for load recipes for 180 grain pills.

    I can't seem to get the rifle to shoot moa. I have shot various factory loads and some reloads using Reloader 22 and 180 Accubonds without much success.

    Any info will be much appreciated

    Thanks in advance.

    Mine really likes 74 grains of imr 7828. I really like 7828 and it doesn't seem to be as popular as others so you can almost always find it.

    Not Tikkas, but I've had good results in several 300WM with 72.8 gr RL22 and 190 Sierra Matchkings. Should run about 2900 fps.
