    If I had to testify in court, I would have to say this is my most accurate center fire rifle right now, but only because I haven't had the time to work with my wife's Savage yet. I'm sure it will be far more accurate then the Rossi soon. :)

    This is a Rossi single shot in .223, with Simmons 4x12x50 scope on it. Back story... It now shoots about one inch groups at 100 yrds. Not great, but considering when I first bought it I was lucky to group on a paper plate at 100 yrds its came a long way. It was junk brand new, but I couldn't in clear soul trade it off knowing that it shot so poorly (I won't pass junk along). So I had my local gunsmith/guru re-crown the barrel (factory crown was trash), and do some tweeks... So, I figure I'll trade it soon, because it's probably about as good as it will ever get with factory ammo now, and I'm just still looking for better.

    Either a Ruger M77 in .220 Swift or a TC Icon Precision in Ruger .204. Both are barn burners.

    WOW, lots of nice looking rifles there. I got a lucky score 15 years or so ago and bought a 1942 K98 Mauser 8mm off a buddy for 100$. Great rifling, like new barrel. No scope, nothing fancy, no mods to it and it shoots tight. Not too bad for a 70 year old rifle.

    Reminton 700 'Varminter' H.B. in 6mm Rem., aftermarket laminate stock with aluminum bedding area and firelapped factory barrel and a trigger job. Best group has been .41" for 5 shots.
    I'm sure it will do better, but for me.

    iron sights or scope?

    iron sights.. a tossup between a carl gustav and a 303 enfield. ( with an honorable mention to a ruskie sks i have that hit 'near center' of a 10" triangle at 150yds, shooting leaning against a rail.

    scope?

    toss up between my rem 700 30-06 and another in 222rem.

    latter being much more pleasent to the shoulder to shoot.

    both make bulls at 100yds easy..

    My favorite(because IT makes me look good),a custom Mauser 98 action with bull barrel 6.5x.06,1.25lb trigger,side safety,with a 56mm Nightforce scope(won for $10 at a gunshow)extremely accurate with 120gr under 500yds,over that,she likes Berger 130s.

    second would be a $365 Savage 110FP in .308,$75 trigger job and floating barrel,with handload 175-180gr Sierra HPBTs,she shoots 1.5 at 200yds all day long.

    Here it is with its older cousin (a .257 Model 70):
