I didnt have much time but went out and shot 5 shots to sight in my Tikka CTR 308 with the SWFA 5x20x50(mil/mil) The first shot 2 shots were barely on paper. I made adjustment and here is a pic of shots 3,4,5. This is at 100 yards with Hornady 155 gr A Max.

That looks good but from experience owning one that gun likes the 168 Amax or Hornady 168 BTHP match best. Excellent rifle and scope you have there.

Do you reload? I would love to see how the berger 185 and 200 hybrids do in this rifle.

Great setup!

I'd say it tracks like it is supposed to. Nice rig you have there.

Ive never reloaded. I started with the lighter load because my last 308 shot the 155 grain really well. Over the next several weeks I will try several different rounds to see if anything performs better.
