Cool beans. I have never seen a Tikka that did not shoot under MOA, mostly better.

If you reload, I would suggest trying the 53gr Hornady V-max, have shot those out to 500yds. Think they would work great in your application. Also available as factory ammunition.

I don't reload..but someday I might so yea the v max is first choice. but I have heard the sierra king 62 gr also fly real well in this rifle.

finnish engineering is like German...compared to my ruger bolts this is a Mercedes to a Chevrolet..fit and finish is perfect. probly a better rifle than ill ever need but sold an ar to cover the cost and it worked out pretty good..and I think im way ahead

Buying the Tikka was a wise move..... my only addition to Arkhangel5's comments is use Varget powder and comp grade primers as the extra cost will be worth it.
