Tikka CTR 308 – Help with Sierra loads
About to pick up my new Tikka CTR in 308 and have some suggested loads I would like some help with.
I have done some reloading of my 223 and know I still have much to learn.
I shoot 100 yards to 300 unsupported and some 500 and 700 yard matches.
Barrel length and twist is close enough to 20inch/1:11 from my understanding.
I have 200 cases or Lapua and Norma brass each that I will use.
Let me know your thoughts on below Sierra/RE-15 loads and uses.
– 135gr Sierra HPBT Match – 46.5 gr RE-15
I am not the biggest bloke and the idea is to have a round with less recoil for matches up to 300 yards.
– 150gr Sierra HPBT Match – 45 gr RE-15
I want a medium round and see if the rifle likes it. Might get away with this for my purposes instead of 160-168gr projectiles.
– 165gr Sierra HPBT Match – 47 gr RE-15
A larger projectile and possibly my 500 – 700 yards “go to” round.
Please let me know what you think, keen to hear.
Thank you in advance!
