Tikka T3X Light 308 – comparing factory and reloads…

This T3X Lite came from a client who had just purchased a new scope and wanted it set up and zeroed. At the same time, they were interested in comparing their existing reloads with a factory load. Was it worth continuing to reload, or would factory box ammo do the job?

On one hand we had some reloads based on a mates ‘secret recipe’ on the other – Hornady Whitetail 150gr Interlocks.

The rifle itself was fairly stock standard, Tikkas just tend to shoot without any fuss. We checked the screw torques, got it quickly zeroed, and shot a couple of groups. The results were a little surprising!
