Tikka 300 win mag

Anyone using a 300 win mag tikka for long range shooting?
Am wondering what loads others are using?
I have a super varmint Tikka but they have their issues for long range with their short magazine which severely limits projectile seating. Huh
Currently running 178 grain amax with 72 gns H4831 but only getting velocity of 2850 fps.

The other issue is the 24 inch barrel which is a tad short for long range. Huh

Interested in other experiences and opinions about the Tikka in 300 wm.

Presume you will be single feeding  208's if shooting a tikka with the short mag length.
Max coal of 3.5 inch for ejecting a live round I presume?

Use Tikka 300winmag, berger vld 210 with  76grns AR2217 or 2225.  (can't recall and not at home) but getting very accurate load and not to hot.

77.6 grains 2217 with 208 ELD-M, Nosler custom brass outside neck turned, 215 Fed GM, for 2984 fps 5 shot average from a 26" Bartlein barrel.

Emphatic.

BTW, I have the original T3 barrel with 48 rds through it for sale if anyone's interested.
Correctly broken in and cleaned with Boretech Eliminator.
Barrel is not threaded or fluted.

So are you still using the tikka t3 action?
And if so then what oal are you loading to and are you single feeding?
The tikka mag length severely resticts the use of projectiles for long range.
This means seating 178 a max to fit the mag which restricts powder capacity or seating out long and not using the magazine??
Also if using 208 amax in a tikka then ejecting a live round is restricted by the action length
Did you swap your barrell for increased velocity?
