Did you adjust the trigger pull weight? I adjusted mine down to 2 1/4 #'s and it is a sweet trigger....I know a the heavier the trigger pull is, the more my accuracy suffers. Tikka has an easily adjusted trigger; less complicated than the older Remington 700's trigger adjustments that I also love. Please let us know about your future accuracy successes.

I don't have a trigger pull scale, but I did adjust it all the way down. It wouldn't go any lower, so I stopped, lol. It's nice and still surprises me a bit. The brake cut the recoil a lot, it's fun to shoot.

Very cool, that is what I did also and it ended up right at 2 1/8 to 2 1/4 #s of pull which is very sweet for me anyway. Let us know your future accuracy issues or lack thereof please.

I have been refining a load for whitetail and have just about got it done. Using Sierra 85gr HPBT and 38grs of IMR 4064, here is my 7 shot group at 100 yds. I think I can still clean it up a bit.

I always measure to the center line of the bullet group. That would make your groups well under 3/4". I would love to have a stock gun that shot that good. I love your bullet choice but do you feel 85gr is sufficient for a 250#+ Mo whitetail.

Well, I have not tried the bullet yet on any game. There are a lot of folks that say the bullet performs well on whitetails and so does Sierra. I am planning to make up some DYI ballistic gel and see what happens. I'm not completely sold yet.
