Mine shot some WWB that were either 40 or 45 grain just fine. Try whatever you have.

I shot 45 gr from my Tikka 223 (not ss, just regular black), but it likes 55 and 62 gr better. It is sub-MOA with 62 gr federal match and 77 gr match. I shot 45 gr only for fun, but had no problem hitting 2" at 100 yards. The good thing about this rifle it will shoot most factory 55 gr very accurately.

Just a side comment, Congrats on the new rifle! What do you think of the rifle? I am looking into getting one in .308 in left hand. It is either this or a Remington 700 SPS placed in a AICS or McRee's Precision Stock. Thanks for your thoughts on your Tikka!.

this is my first left handed action, its just something i wanted,and I dint want a savage or a Rem,they;re great guns,but i wanted either a CZ,or tikka,so no one in my area had or has any left hand Tikkas,let alone CZs,,yes they say you can get them,but no one has them,Or no one makes left handers,,I heard it all...so any how,i know ill like this lefty,feels so nice in my hands,and its light,but not to light,the action,is silky smooth,,im hoping to get 100 rounds thought it this week,,i'll let you know how it is after i break in the barrel,
