well i use hand loads but,BgBambo shoots the hornady 75 gr. hp's and shoots a 1 hole group with 5 shots at 100y. nope not makin it up i watched him do it.those same factory rounds wouldnt do that in mine,mine didnt like the factory stuff it really likes the hornady 75 gr. vmax loaded with 44.5 grs, of H414 for a group of .31" @ 100yds.now then the hole set up is an EGW Pikatanny rail with Warne rings and a Bushnell Elite 6500 that is how Stan's Tikka is set up and with the exception of the 6500 my Tikka is set up the same.my Tikka has an Elite 3200.the Tikka factory rings are garbage and that is why the rail was installed it also gives more options of what can be used on the rifle.it also make a stronger shooting platform especially with the Warne rings.the factory rings look flimsy and have a potential to move around.
