    i have two savage 110 tacticals with canjar triggers.when shooting my 223 at one hundred yards i get upset if my groups go over three quarters of an inch.i am using my own hand loads.the 308 will do the same but when your target is a one inch square bullet over lap occurs with three shot groups. old semperfi

    My most accurate rifle is my 1903 Springfield, military full C Stock and 3X9 rangefinding scope. Ugly as sin (looks like it was dragged behind a jeep several times), but it will shoot sub- 1/2" groups at 100 yards all day with M73 match loads.

    Ive got one of those jim. Cept mine was still packed in cosmo when i bought it last year so it looks brand new, and it dont have a scope.. But it is quite a shooter.

    But the sights are so hard for me to see I can't really tell how accurate it might me.
    I recently got a 1903A3 also with the C type stock.
    Sights much easier to use but I have not shot it yet.

    My stainless version if the Savage 110 is a Savage 116 in 7mm Rem. Mag. and it's super deadly accurate even with the sizeable recoil that comes with the 7mm Mag.

    I also have a Steyr SBS HBC Tactical that is much more forgiving of different ammo types than my 700VS-

    Least expensive centerfire I own but this .308 H&R has been the most accurate gun I own since I took it out of the box 20 years ago. Plain Jane hunting bullets, 180 grain Remington Core-Lokt is the load this gun likes. Any other bullet weight and it's just another gun.

    center fire... hmmmm... would have to vote my M1A, the gun is 063,xxx serial number but was rebarreled and worked over good by the military armorers at camp perry many moons ago. the barrel/bolt are 7 million and something serial number.

    But I hope to beat it with a new bolt gun, long overdue for one. Thinking either .280 rem or go for a .300 mag, probably .300 WSM or the RUM. Still need a M24 setup also though... hmmm.. so many guns, so little green in the wallet...

    doesn't matter what bullet/powder combo you throw down the pipe, the M1A holds point of impact on all of them and it's stupid accurate, especially considering it's a gas gun. Even with iron sights, I can usually out-perform everything else I own. Some of my old 03-A3's are very accurate though also, even the 2 groove barreled one.

    the .17 HMR I have (marlin) and my .22 target rifles are more accurate but rimfire so don't count.

    This is a NM M-1 garand built on a Wincester receiver made in 1941...

    The previous owner was a seious highpower shooter and took it to Camp Perry twice.

    It is the only iron sighted rifle that I have ever been able to shoot a sub 1 moa group with.

    I love this rifle.....I want to be buried with this rifle....:D

    That's tough; I have several bolt guns that shoot into 1/2", but my favorite is a Pedersoli Sharps 1874 that I have been working with for the last few years. I have a 518 gr. cast bullet, heat treated from wheel weights and lubed with my own recipe sitting on 27.2 gr. of IMR4198 with a card, that puts five rounds into one hole at 100 yards. This is with a tang sight. Really astounding that one can get that kind of accuracy with a peep sight.

    Gotta love the Brownings, something about them just give me the warm fuzzies.

    My most accurate CF is my A-bolt in 7mm-08.

    yep that a large ring commercial mauser action. Some of the best custom rifle actions are the Interarms Mark X actions.
