Your Most Accurate Rifle?

Postby dlh » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:57 am

What are your most accurate rifles?

Mine are the longer barreled bolt-action rifles--the Remington 700 22-250 and the Remington 700 in .300 Winchester Magnum.

My shorter barreled semi-automatic rifles--not so much.

The scopes are important too--I am a big Leupold fan. I know some scopes cost hundreds of dollars more but I have never been tempted to spend that kind of money.

Sako A7 in 243, had 3-shots bullseye +2 withing 1/2". Note all my 3 bolt actions rifles are 0.3MOA to 0.4MOA. All are non-modified factory rifles.

Sold it recently but had a Savage 12LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor. It was a .3 MOA Rifle but I think if I would have experimented with different powders I could have hot .25.

hard to answer here probably my Hammond built 6BR, 24" Hart 1:12 #6 contour Shilen DGA action Jewel trigger . McMillian Kevlar pillar bedded stock 8x32 Leupold.

Just shoots a ragged hole 5 shot groups, Awhile back I eliminated everything that did not shoot under .350 5 shot groups, center to center, all my Ackleys will do this very easy which equates to under an inch at 200 yds, really about .7 or less most shoot slightly around .5 at 200 yds, ALL 5 shot groups not 3 shot. Shot from good bench, rear bags and Bald Eagle front rest. Shot in good conditions.

I have a witnessed 3 of 5 shot kills at 883 yds with Leica range finder with my 243 Ackley with 70 gr Bergers on prairie dogs my friend hit 4 of 5 shots at same distance, we doubled checked with 2 range finders using the truck for a target for them.

40X single shot action, 243 Ackley cal, 24" Shilen super match 1:14 #6, McMillian kevlar stock pillar bedded, Leupold 8x32, muzzle brake fluted, Jewel trigger .

My favorite of all all is a 22/6mm on a Shilen DGA single shot action, McMillian Kevlar pillar bedded stock, Jewel trigger, Leupold 8x32, 26" Hart fluted 1:10 # 6 barrel, stock pebble camo finish, wildcat on a 6mm case necked down to 22 cal. We crono,ed it with 68gr Bergers at 3800 when new, a joy and dream to shoot, I don't usually run it that fast, just had to see!

All triggers are set around 1.5 to 2 oz breaks, some used to call this caliber a 22 TTH and info available on that name for it.

Love accurate rifles!! sorry for long post I just love to shoot these.

Don't have any target rifles, but when I do my part, my Howa 1500 in .308 Winchester with a 20" barrel will shoot a 3/4", 3-shot group at 100 yards. And this is with the cheapest 150 gr Winchester deer rounds from Wally World.

My rifles I spoke of are varmint hunting rifles not target rifles, we shot many prairie dogs at very long ranges for years, I sure would love to do it again and on my 2 do list.
