    6.5x55 tikka t3 with 120gr nosler balistic tip

    Took my new 6.5x55 tikka t3 hunter out today to fire its first ever shots.

    I used a new atec maxim and some homeloads from my rfd. These are 120gr nosler balistic tips from 45.5 gr of N160.

    The group on the left is the first five shots and the group on the right the second five shots.

    The reason they are high is because I just fitted the scope and bore sighted it and have never put any shots through it before now. They now hit the black square perfectly.
