Just got my order in for a special run T3X Lite SS 22-250 with 1/8" twist. Super excited to get this and develop a long range steel plinker/that will double as a lr coyote/wolf rifle. Going to mount a SWFA SS 10X42 on it so I can reliably dial.

Anyone have this rifle or a 1/8" twist 22-250 and played with the 75-80 grain bullets. I know for sure I will be ok with 75 grain ELD X bullets. Been told the 80 grainers will work fine to. An 80 grain eld x at 3000-3100 fps in a handy little Tikka would be one heck of a 600 yard rifle.

That's gonna be a great rifle! I have a bunch of the heavy Amax's stashed away for a rig like that in the future!

You mean something like this? :)
I'm going to be doing load development on it here soon....
Initial expectations for the 20.25" barrel and 69 grain sierras is 3200ish fps using Viht N160. I'll let you know what the charge weights and seating depth ends up being on final loads!
