Winchester Laredo accuracy


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hello all. Just bought a Winchester Laredo in 7 Mag and so far I am underwhelmed with it's accuracy. If any of you Laredo owners are shooting nice groups please let me know what factory ammo or handloads you are using. All my sporters outshoot this rifle. Thanx much!

Sir,

Likely less to do with the rifle, and more to do with the cartridge. The 7RM can be a little high strung, and can take some dickering to get it sorted out. Id recommend going to a heavier bullet, and if you are a reloader try a 168 grain Sierra. That bullet and a max charge of H1000, gets it done for me.

Best to you Sir,

Steve
