My most accurate is also my cheapest....Savage Axis 22-250. It shoots near 1/4 moa at 200 yards. Yes that is near 1/2 inch center to center groups st 200. The dot is 1/2 inch diameter.

Two Musgraves (.308W / 30-06), one BRNO ZKK (.308W), one Walther (.22 Hornet), one Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.1(.303 Brit) are all better than I can shoot and with the sons and their good eyes will do 3/4" at 220 yards. Maybe the Enfield will do 1.5". None are free floated, none are bedded - still metal in wood as they came out of the factory 40+ years ago.

My rifle are stock without bedding, etc. But its a tossup between a M77V Ruger tang safety in 243, another in 22-250 and an old Remington 722 in 222 Magnum. I'd give the edge to the 222 Mag but all will shot into 3/8 in or less. Interestly, the 722 came with an old Weaver 6x with a big dent in the bell....looked like a ball peen hammer strike. Before changing out the scope I shot it and it put 3 shots of factory ammo virtually into the same hole. I left it alone.

Winchester model 70 push-feed XTR Sporter in .270 Winchester.

Right behind it is the M98 action with Shilen barrel, timney trigger, high-tech specialties stock and Gentry 3 position safety that I built my 35 Whelen AI around. That shoots 200 gr TTSX after 200 gr TTSX into overlapping cloverleaf's.

However overall the 270 shoots anything great and has to get my gold star for the most accurate rifle I own.

I have a Hart heavy SS barreled .308 on a Model 70 action that I stocked/bedded myself back in the late 60's. It is a bench rest rifle and has a model 3200 Redfield 24X scope on it. Second most accurate rifle is my varmint rifle. It is a heavy barreled 7mm magnum (27 inches) on a Mauser (stamped 1916 Berlin) action that I stocked/bedded myself also in the late 60's. It's on its second barrel and is topped with a 5-25 Leupold mil dot scope.

Custom Remington 700 in 6mm-284 = 3/8" groups @ 300 yards

Custom Remington 700 in 300 Jr. = 1 7/16" @ 600 yards

T/C Contender in 7X30 Waters = 1/4" @ 100 yards

Custom Ruger #1 in 30-30 Armadillo = 3/8" @ 200 yards

Custom Remington 700 in 375 H&H = 3/8" @ 200 yards

Hard to pick any one gun, as best accuracy depends more on shooting conditions than anything else.

I have had a number of good rifles go through my hands. There are some keepers in the gun safe. One rifle is a late 1970's Remington 700 Varmint Special in 222 Remington with 1 1/8" Unertl 10X scope. The rifle delivers excellent accuracy to this day. My all time champ for consistent accuracy is my antique Remington 40X BR in 222 Magnum. Recently, I was shooting some old factory ammo in the green box. The absolute worst horrible group of the day was 3/4".

That can't be real RJ, everyone knows Remington's aren't any good, ha ha

I'm looking for a target to post a picture of from a 700 varmint special 7-08 I shot years ago, it was just under 1/2 inch at 100yds, 10 shots but I probably could have shot 50 shots and the group wouldn't have gotten bigger. People say they have rifles that will "shoot a half inch all day" but in reality those are rare guns.

Nice group btw

From my wall

These are groups from 3 great shooting rifles, funny how the real tack drivers don't get sold or traded.
First target is from a Remington 700 classic in swift, 3 shots with a flier, that gun still groups better than most new varmint rifles, 3 shots landed in .206 or under 1/4 inch.
Second target is from my Remington 40XR with that handmade 22 ammunition Federal made for a short time, back then it was over 20. a box The new production Tenex is hit or miss.
Third group is from my recently rebarreled Anschutz, Pac-nor barrel, group is under 1/2 at 100m {109yds}

That 243 could be a legit varmint for score gun RJ, or head shots on those skinny little ground squirrels up in your neck of the woods. In Wyoming they call them picket pins, I called them hard to hit past 200 yards.

I call 'em Gods gift to shooters! A great little reactive target with red mist!

I only hunt with my rifles, so 100 yard sight in ranges is all I’ve ever done. The two most accurate one I’ve ever owned were a Ruger semi auto .44 mag and a Browning A-bolt in 7mm rem mag. The Ruger punched tight clover leafs at 100 yards and the Browning could so 5/8” at 100 yards. Sold both many years ago. Regret losing the Ruger but not the Browning. (Too long).
