BR=ballistic reticule?  If so, yes, i use it, I really like it: simple, clear, lots of load stickers tos tart with and a few for custom.

I am a huge Tikka fan, a huge 300WM fan, and now a huge Swaro fan: good luck, let me know how it goes.

Also, a word of caution: take the rings that came on your great Tikka rifle, and throw them straight into the garbage.  They are pure crap.  I recommend Warne or Talley (I lreally like the Talleys because they are are horizontal rings and they include a base specific to Tikka's mounting holes.

Depending on what you wish to do with the scope, TDS might be right, ballistic might be right.  I'm guessing youa re throwing 180-grain rounds down-range at 2800FPS to kill prairie dogs.  Mine is a deer/hog/"kill everything" gun - and for that, I chose the ballistic reticle: cleaner and simpler than the TDS.

Swaro makes great scopes, and Tikka makes great rifles - just remember not to make the mistake of mating the 2 with the worst set of rings ever made.
