Tikka T3x Tac A1 Groups

Here are some five shot groups shot with my Tikka and Hornady factory ammo. Needless to say, I am really happy with these groups. I recently shot a ladder test and have handloaded two different batches of promising loads using H4350 and Hornady 140 gr. ELD-M bullets.

Three of the four groups measured between .567" and .673". The fourth group was .476". Not bad for factory ammo. I am hoping to get below 1/2" all the time with my hand loads.

The scope is a Bushnell HDMR2 3.5-21x50 FFP in mil/mil with a H59 reticle. I was able to get it at a good discounted price using a veteran discount.

I am looking to shoot PRS and F Class matches with this set up. I'll have to take off the muzzle brake for F Class of course.

I really like my Tikkas. I looked at one of those on my last trip through Bass Pro. I was surprised at how hefty they feel in that model. Nice!

Hefty? Yes, defenately. The weight of my Tikka configured as in the photo, with scope, bipod and empty magazine is 14.1 lbs.

24" This morning I was testing some of my reloads at 300 yds. My 5 shot groups averaged .8 to .9 MOA. The winds were calm and I was hoping for smaller groups. I shot one group of factory, same bullet, and got .913 MOA.
