I had a Savage in 22 Hornet that on a clam day shooting 34 grain Dogtown bullets would do the one hole thing at 100 yards. Any wind and all bets were off. Current is a N.E.F. varmint in 223 that shoots 1/2 MOA.

My most accurate rifles are a pair of heavy barreled Remington 700 in 223 (VLS) and 308 (VS). Both rifles will shoot 1/2 MOA out to 300 yards with good ammo. I have other rifles including ARs that are accurate but for purely shooting small groups my 2 Remington above are most accurate.

It is the only rifle I have ever been able to shoot “cleans” with.
I don’t know the MOA or any other stats, just it shoots better than I can hold it.
Have not fired it since my last match, probably 15 years ago.

.22 LR. BSA Martini III. Lyman sights. Back in the day it would stand up to an Anschutz or Winchester Intl.
Old school, four position, prone, kneeling, sitting, offhand. I just had to do my part.
Single shot, used to eject about six feet to the right.
Fish is lightyears ahead of me. I would love to shoot that.
What new gun my dear, this old thing?

I was very fortunate to have Mike Ross build that 6BR for me.
It may be one of the last he did.

Always felt like I should not be allowed to operate such a creation, like giving a Stradivarius to a chimp….

Remington LTR with hand tightened threaded barrel. The barrel and action are mounted in a folding Ultimate Sniper by Maj. John Plaster stock with an old school Redfield scope. I can break it down and fit it in a briefcase to tote it around. Will put 5 rounds into a dime at 100 yards with non-premium ammo(really likes PMC 308). Originally bought it from a member on here around 2005.
