    .243 ammo

    hi guys,

    I have just treated myself to a tikka. before I waste a load of dough on ammo can you tell me, is it find the ammo that suits the gun and all are a bit different like the cz rimmies or is there a 'tikka' favorite?

    Also is there a cheapy range ammo that will give similar results/groups to 100g soft nosed - or do i just go buy lots of different brands and start testing.

    Many thanks for any input.

    Privi are probably the cheapest however I prefer sako or Norma. What are you planning to shoot with it ?

    Unfortunately testing is the only real way of knowing. Mine likes hornady SST 95gn but dislikes ppu and federal powershock (which I know other people who get good accuracy with these in their t3).

    Worth a try I guess, but I'd get a box of ppu to try just in case your rifle likes them!

    You are correct, I see your rifle like Hornady sst 95, my CZ and my mates ssg would not group at all with them.

    will be mainly fox but also some stalking. I want to get used to one bullet for both, i know its overkill for the fox but i think it will be the fastest way to learn that bullet so be better on deer when used. later will probably have different rounds for each.

    I use 100g on both, only so I don,t have to think.

    +1 mine loves the SST and I can group .6 moa off a bench with them whereas the PPU were closer to 1.5 moa. Both acceptable for sensible shooting distances but the PPU is less than half price.
