Default 243 reload question

Thinking about loading some 107 gn Sierra MatchKings for my Tikka 243. When doing some reading, Sierra said that the 107 gn Matchking requires a 1x8 twist or faster. My Tikka has a 1x10 twist. Will this be a problem, and should I consider a different bullet? I plan to shoot long range paper target at my club. Range from 100 to 400 yards. Your input would be a great help to me…

I would personally try a Berger 90gr match BT. It has a BC of .398 and is perfect for the 1-10 twist. You might also try the 105gr match BT. It has a BC of .527, and recommended twist is 1-9. Should give better accuracy at long range than the Sierra. Good luck
