    REmington 742 in 6mm. Only one I've ever seen, and was my dads.

    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.

    ;) Great looking gun still ! The wood made me think Browning at first glance. What do you have it scoped with?

    The three of mine that I shoot with the most and would have to say, three of the most accurate that I like to shoot and coyote hunt with (as far as sub moa) are the Savage 12 in .223 Rem., Remington 788 in .243 Rem. and the Savage 11 in .204 Ruger.

    Just a Bushnel 3X9. It was my Grandfathers, so I'm leaving it the way it was in his memory. The interest thing though is the serial # is only 1036, I just haven't found the time to research it further.
