    Hey, Poper, I don't have the Tikka, but I have close to the same combination, same scope, caliber, etc, and it's a great setup. Sometimes you set things up right, and do everything "to the nines" and it just comes out wrong, in the end. I'd chalk it up to bad luck. WTH, a bad day hunting still beats a good day working.

    Agreed. I have a 243 that is one of my most accurate rifles and I have taken over a dozen deer with it, but it is for special purpose. Every deer except one has fallen to it except one and it was a complete miss. I hit a limb about 3 feet in front of the muzzle and nobody knows where that bullet went. It certainly wasn't in the deer. I use it in open country and don't tickle the trigger until everything is perfect. Other times the Creedmoor or the 300 WSM come out of the safe. The CM is for the open creek bottom where I can see 1/2 mile and the WSM is for when I am in the timber. It is an old Savage that wears a 2x9 Leupold. All work very well for their purpose.
