Your most accurate rifle....

What Is your most accurate rifle? What is/was it and who built it? Have fun with it.

    Cooper model 52 in 280ai. March 2.5-25x42 on a Farrel flat rail. Very consistant, the last couple of groups shot at 600yds

    It would depend on the range. I had a .308 that would shoot in the .1's consistently with several screamer groups thrown in at 100yds. I shot plain old Sierra 125gr SPT's in it with H4895. Out to 300yds it was amazing. Past that the wind would screw with it pretty good. It had a Hart 1.25" straight barrel on it. I built the gun myself.

    The smallest group I've shot at mid ranges was with my .30-8mm last year. It was a 3 shot .96" group at 550yds. It's a Rem. action with a Sendero contour Bartlein barrel. I built this one myself also.

    The best long range group was with my .308 Baer that Bruce Baer built for me 20+ years ago. A 5 shot group just under 4" @ 1000yds. It's a 1.25" straight Hart barrel 30" long.

    Hands down my HS Precision Pro-Series 2000 chambered in 7mm WSM.

    The gun is more accurate than I am pretty much any day of the week.... spend too much time working and not enough time shooting!
