    I am looking at a Tikka 300 WSM. However, I plan to load heavy 30 caliber bullets such as 208 grain A-max. My question is the Tikka has a 1 in 11 twist wich is slightly slower than suggested for the heavier bullets. Is anybody shooting heavy (200+ grain) bullets with a Tikka? If so, how is it working? Your thoughts please.

    Thanks
