As the title says, I took my recently acquired Tikka T3 Stainless 308 out to the range again today. This time I used 150 grain SST Hornady bullets over IMR 4064 and again, got outstanding results. From the bags I hovered around .5 inches for three shot groups (6 of them) and off hand I was shooting around 6" (and less) in a 15-18 mph cross wind. I didn't chrono the load due to the wind but I'm guessing around 2800 fps. Not blisteringly fast but plenty powerful and more than accurate enough. My cases were Small Base Full Length resized, trimmed to uniform length, flared, loaded and crimped. They will feed through all of my 308's flawlessly. The brass is SBS military.
I am just so very pleased with the Tikka rifles and again appreciative of the seemingly effortless ability to find a good load with this chambering.~Muir
