Tikka 7mm R.E.M. Mag long range setup

Hi guys.
So I had a mate drop his standard tikka 7mm R.E.M. Mag off to me a while ago to sort out a load for it and do a drop chart for long range shooting. I finally got it sorted this weekend and I couldn't be happier. I ended up using hornady 162 eld-x projectiles, and  71.7 grans of ADI 2225 this gave me a speed of 2970fps. I took it out for a test run on some goats this evening, cleaning out my first goat at 635 yards and my second at 715 yards. This was also made a bit harder with quite a strong breeze blowing. For me I can't really go past the old tikka for value for money and out of the box accuracy.

He has a Nikon Monarch 4x16 with paralex on it. I haven't had much to do with them and I was quite impressed with the optics at that range too.
