Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

CVA Frontier Carbine in .50 cal using Hornady round ball, .015" patch and 30grns of Goex 3F. From 0 to 100yrds consider it dead for deer size animals. I use #11 percussion caps from CCI! Split 6 playing cards on edge at 15' off hand and cut a 3/4" group at 30yds off hand. Open sights too! Had a pretty good day that day.

Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

Hmmmmm----Best Out Of The Box Accuracy????

After much thought it has to be whatever rifle Speedy has built and put into the "Box" when he sends them to me! Take it out of the box and they always meet expectations!

Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

I'm thinking we have exhausted the "Out of the Box Accuracy." We covered the 4 majors (Rem, Win, Savage, Weatherby). We talked about TC, Kimber, Sako, and Tikka. So not sure what else to through in there. The TRG series Sako's are very accurate, but very expensive to boot! I like Howa's but they require a little smithing to really get them tuned in. If you have the coin the Accuracy Internationals will get the job done.

Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

Yes---I have had 2 AIWM's and they both shot great! Used to take one of them to the 1k IBS matches and ring the steel with them on the Friday practice sessions.

They were too heavy (for light and had no bag manners but for a non BR gun were very accurate!!
