Specific load data for this combo: Tikka 7 mag and Zeiss Rapid ZPosted by Open-sights on December 24, 2016 at 4:09 pm
Anyone on here shoot this exact setup? I've been messing around with the Zeiss calculator but want to know if any of you shoot this exact combo and if so:
1). What handloads have you found works best and/or
2). Best Factory Ammo for this combo for deer sized critters.

I have the T3X lite SS in 7 Rem Mag and mounted a Zeiss Conquest 5HD with similar reticle.(I think it is the Rapid Z 600)
I used HSM factory ammo (obtained from Len at Long Range Hunting or from a distrib. in NV) with Berger 168 VLD hunter bullets.Got sub moa at range.
This is a light weight combo.
Not yet used in hunting since it traveled as backup to my 300WM on Elk hunt in case the airline misaligned the 300 in handling.
No hand load data for you, as I do not practice that fine art

Thankyou for that detailed response. That is a great starting point.

The Berger loads are your best option- you will be looking at a significant learning process if you want to match those rounds. If you want to do that then I applaud you- I would start with the same Berger bullet and work from there
