    got the un-used tikka 590 .243 out today

    I have not fired this rifle for about 7 months,

    So i stuck the scope off my 20 tac on it and dropped a borrowed T8 on it, zerod it with 5 privi shots and then had three home loads left,

    I was running 100 gr privi on the zeroing and then I had 3 x 70 gr noslers left from my old foxing loads.I popped out on the estate ange today over lunch and gave the old girl a run for her money.

    1st was a tad high so dropped it 4 clicks

    In the end I was very happy with the results and i am now thinking why am I not keeping the 243 ?

    That's .243 for you. Not particularly trendy but accuracy potential with the right loads.

    the group with the privi was also goo, but i wanted a clean sheet to see just what this old blind man could do with a quick set up and test.

    243..............works.
