    Hello,
    I picked up a Tikka Forest in a 300wsm for a mountain gun and truck gun. Wanting to shoot 180s in it. It has a 1/11 twist. Put some factory 165 hornady's through it for the break in. Does anyone have any reloading data or suggestions. Anything will be appreciated.

    I have a Sako 75 in 300 WSM, so the Tikka should be the same or darn close to it. I've only loaded the 180gr & 200 gr bullets in it.
    180gr Accubond/Ballistic Tip or Partition (they all shoot great with this load), 65.5 gr of HV100, 2.860 COAL, Nosler Brass, WLRM primer, 3025 fps and 0.30" moa accuracy
    200 gr ELDX, 62.8 gr of RL17, 2.855 COAL, Nosler brass, WLRM primer, 2952 fps, under 0.50" moa accuracy
