Needless to say I a bummed, you can only see one, but there are two sheared torx screws, serves me right for buying the used rings? Well I got a new set of rings comming in and will have to re-sight, oh well. I am giddy as all heck with the way she shoots as the groups looked like whats above all day long, and with crappy ammo to boot!!

All the Thanks to BigBamBoo for walking me though everything.

What kind of tikka? I'm eyeing the sporter once it becomes more readily available.

Nice stuff!

If only you reloaded, you would REALLY get to see what the Tikka can do! Cut my groups in half with my 30-06 T3 Lite down to 0.60 - 0.75 MOA @ 100 Yards. I'd love to see what that bull barrel'ed varminter could do!

I have an RCBS kit on order! I have to learn how to devlop loads. However I haven't even shot the Fed match ammo yet? I am hoping to get some good results with those. Did I say I love my Tikka! LOL

You're going to be saying that a lot, the more you shoot it. Welcome to the "Tikka Club".:D:D:D

I honestly dont know if they will shoot more accurately. I think match ammo is often a waste when using from a Bolt gun. I mean, they might be a little better than the cheap federal crap stuff, but really....when you neck size the cases that have been shot from YOUR gun, it is much more "Taylor Made" to your chamber. And you can find the appropriate seating depth, choose the powder that works the best, most consistent primers, the specific bullet that your barrel likes the best given the twist rate, ability to control the run-out, etc, etc. It goes on and on.

I've made more accurate rounds using the cheapest of components by reloading vs buying the most expensive match grade ammo. The reason is because that match grade ammo still has to fit a wide plethora of chambers, and the tolerances are much looser. When you use your own brass, its fire formed to your chamber (assuming you've shot it out of your rifle before).

Anyways, glad you're reloading....you'll LOVE the results. Make SURE you have a neck sizer for the brass that was shot from your rifle. Only use a full length sizer for brass to be used in a Semi Auto rifle or for resizing brass that was fired from a different rifle.

Good luck!
