Tikka T3X Light 308 – comparing factory and reloads…

This T3X Lite came from a client who had just purchased a new scope and wanted it set up and zeroed. At the same time, they were interested in comparing their existing reloads with a factory load. Was it worth continuing to reload, or would factory box ammo do the job?
