I said that would post the results of my test firing of my mew Tikka T3 in 25-06 and I am pleased to report that they are excellent. I tried 3 types of factory ammo but it liked the Federal 117 gr Sierra Gamekings best. With these and firing across the hood of my truck with only a jacket or two as a rest results at 100 yards were typically as the following photo depicts
If I did my part one inch or better groups were common at 100 yards. I also fired it from 200 yards and 300 yards at a deer target with vitals printed on it. At 200 I skimmed a bullet just over the heart and exactly where I was aiming. At 300 I hit it in the lungs but about 3 inches right of where I aimed but at that distance I'm sure I pulled it a bit.
I couldn't be more pleased. I however have little experience with sierra gameking bullets. Would love to hear any opinions or experiences with them.
