I have just bought a lovely Tikka 595 Stainless synthetic in .22-250 which I have fallen in love with! I cant shoot it until Sunday which is quite frustrating as I have no time off until then with work and im picking up on Saturday!
Anyway, what range would you guys zero it at? Im thinking half inch high at 100 yards? Ive bought a box of Federal 55grain soft points and a box of Norma 50grain Vmax Hornaday. I will be using the rifle mainly as a foxer but also for thinning out the muntjac if they present themselves. I know you should always use soft point/expandable ammo for shooting deer, but if I had vmax in the breech then it is going to be very difficult to unbolt and change the round for a soft point bullet without spooking the deer. Has anyone ever been in this situation or shot a Munty with a ballistic bullet? Otherwise im thinking just to use 55g soft points all the time
