Great reload for my T3 lite 223!!! Varmint ammo
Here's a winning combination that we have found that works very well in my 223 T3 Lite.
Attached pictures show groups without taking diameter of bullet into effect, measured from outside edges. All 3 shot groups shooting off a bench, using a backpack up front and a shooting bag at the back.
The rifle is now a consistent 1/4-1/2 MOA shooter at 100yrds with this combo tested in every condition so far, ranging from wind, snow and rain. The groups are also keeping this MOA at 200yrds in average conditions. It is far more accurate then the off the shelf Hornady 55gr V-max. The V-max is a little faster out of my rifle but not nearly as consistent.
One thing I did notice when developing this load in a 1 – 8 twist is the difference in velocity from this barrel to another Tikka with a 1 – 12 twist….about 80fps just with the barrel change, I was not expecting this much of a difference in velocity between 2 similar rifles firing the same reload.
Nosler 55gr Spitzer
Hornady Brass (fired 1 time)
Barrel 1 – 8 twist.
