Finally got to shoot my new Tikka Varmint 223
Well I got to shoot my new Tikka T3 Varmint.
First I did my 20 shot breakin with good cleaning between each shot. I used PMC 55 grain ammo and it didn't like it one bit. My T3 Lite loves the stuff. Then I went to some various handloads one of them being 69 gr loads which has proven very accurate in my T3 lite. It seemed to like them a little bit with a .75 group of 5. Last I tried an assortment of 75 grain Amax loads (dropped the box so they were all mixed up) Well it finally liked these with 6 shots in .5 moa, 5 shots in .330 and 3 shots in .22 inches. I can tell you I wasn't holding .22 but I have to say I was pleased with that group because I dropped the 5th & 6th shot. so the 4 shots in under .33 inches is as good or better than I can shoot.
I have a 20 MOA rail with a Vortex Viper 6 x 24 on it.
