I am hoping that someone will be able to help me with selection of a factory load that will suit my rifle. I have a Tikka T3 Varmint in .243 with 1 in 10 twist. I use a Burris Full Field 30 scope and I have a Northstar moderator. I have just got the rifle a couple of weeks ago and have only tried 2 types of round. The first being Winchester SP in 100 grain and I only achieved just under 2" grouping at 100 meters. I then tried Remington SP in 80 grain and was able to group on or as near to 1" at 100 meters. Can anyone give me advice on what they think might suit my rifle. I will be stalking most of the Deer in UK and do intend on doing a bit of shooting with friends in both Germany and Poland. I intend on getting myself some Red Deer stalking in Scotland and there for need to consider 100 grain + rounds to shoot within the law.
I would appreciate any advice on both a lighter round that would suit both Roe and Fox and as stated a heavier round for the larger Deer species. I do eventually intend on getting into reloading but at the moment I need to concentrate on factory loads. I have tried to do a forum search on this subject but can't find anything that answers my question. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me.
Sorry to the mods if this is in the wrong section.
