Least accurate gun

Ok i would have put this on one of my other post but decide to just start a new thread. Anybody can admit his best shooting gun because their pround of it but of any gun you've owned what has giving you the worst accuracy. Mine was a ruger pc 40 40 s&w. The gun itself was pretty cool, rugged, and i love ruger. But the trigger pull was just terrible. cocked and off safety you could hang the gun on your figger by the trigger and it wouldn't go off. worst trigger i have felt on any gun. Trigger pull must have been 10+lbs. Now it could have got a trigger job and been really fun to shoot but it had some jamming issues. So with the trigger problem making good groups impossible and jams the gun was sold and replace by a ruger mini 30 that hasnt jammed and has a ok trigger for a plinker. What gun of your have giving you problems like this? this should be interesting so please man up and admit it

I had one of those guns one. My worst shooting gun was a Ruger mark11 30-06. I got it for a graduation present. At best factory ammo would group 6 inches at 100.

Hands down. Browning BAR 300 win mag. Belgium made. Patterns not groups. 5 inch three shot groups at 100 yards. Best I ever got from that gun was 3.5 inches at 100. Needless to say it didn't last in my safe.
If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got.

Sako 75 300 WSM. Shoots patterns not groups. Have played with loads and everything imaginable for many years. Ive had buddys who are accomplished shooters give it a whirl and the same results. So off to Sulli it goes for a new barrel or whatever he finds. I wouldnt buy another one if it was half the price. POS. I have buddies with Remingtons straight off the shelf and half the price that shoot circles around that rifle.

Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker 338 Win with Boss. 2.5 inches at 100 with every load I could find. Sold it to my uncle, who was convinced that I didn't spend enought time on it and he had similar results. He then replaced it with a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker 338 Win without Boss. Same results.

Bed the stock, all kinds of loads, check the scope........junk both times.

Sweet little Barnard "P" single-shot action, with nice bedded stock, and a custom Bartlein 9 twist 30" barrel, chambered in long-throated 7WSM for the Berger 180s...

I left it sit in the garage on a bipod one day; after my wife ran it over with her car, it wouldn't hold 5 MOA, and it shot 12 MOA to the right...

I had Howa 1500 T-Hole Sporter in 308 which shot 6" groups at 100 yards... Gunshop I bought it from send it for repairs to LegacySports the wait was few months and I didn't want to wait it was brand new rifle, so the owner refund me and I never looked back at Howa again.
