I think it really depends on caliber, load, shooting position, and rest. I have a 260 that I can lock my nondominant had around my rear bag. I can't spot my shots yet but the POI is at the POA.
However I also have a 7mm with a 26" tube that weighs 14 lbs. It is a two hand gun for sure. I put moderate reward presssure on the forend with the nondominat hand(left) and really try and hold on. With my 180 Berger load you really have to hold on. It is a steady 1/2 MOA gun. I've tried all ltypes of different holds and with my rest (cheap caldwell front rest and rear bag) that somewhat resembles what I would shoot with in the woods I have to put two good hands on the gun.
Just my 2cents.
