I have no dog in this hunt only my opinion based on what I have observed.
I don't have a dog in it either, but what you have observed is poor shooting. This is my last post in this thread. I just want the OP to know that the TRG is a 1/2 MOA rifle at 1000. The shooter may not be, but the rifle is for damn sure. This is a 42, but the 22 is just as accurate if not more.
Military .338 Lapua Magnum Rifles Compared, the SAKO TRG-42 and AI-AWSM
"For the last year, we have been shooting these rifles side by side at targets out to 1600 yards, with a keen interest to determine which rifle is more accurate. The summary is that they shoot basically the same. Both will shoot one-hole groups at 100 yards, and both can shoot sub-half-MOA at 1000 yards if the shooter knows what he's doing and conditions are favorable."
The TRG in this article shot 3 rounds into 3 inches at 940 yds.
