Ammo Suggestions for .308
So I have about 300 rounds through my 2 month old Tikka Tactical 308. I was running Hornady Superperformance 150gr SST factory through it and am getting about 0.310 inch groups at 100 yards. But…. it is inconsistent. I'll get those groups about twice out of a 20 round box. I bumped up to the 165gr and it seems a little more consistent.
I talked to Beretta and they say the rifle is test fired with Sierra Match King 168gr rounds. They shoot well but I don't want to hunt with those. (yes I know that rifle is a bit heavy for hunting but I'm a stout fella) I've been working on my shooting technique as well so that may be some issue as I've always shot better than average but not consistent.
Can anyone tell me what their thoughts are on factory loads for this rifle with a 20″ barrel. I'm told 165 or 168gr bullets are preferable.
(Also, action is torqued to 51 in/lbs and scope mount is torqued per specs with a Nikon monarch 3 scope)
