I have a rem 700 pss that was shooting 1/2 out of the box all day long if that counts! other than that my most accurate out of the box, broken down plain and simple gun was my winchester model 70 with a pre 64 action. It shot 3/4 consistantly out of the box with a leupold 6-18 vxII.

For consistantly getting a high % of rifles that shoot extremely well, Savage is by far the best buy on the market. Used to be that they were not overly attractive rifles but that is starting to get better. With that however the cost of the rifles have increased but all in all, I believe they are the best value in an accurate rifle out of the box.

I have seen amazing shooting specimens from all makers of rifles, if they all shot like that I would not be in business but on average, the Savage is hard to beat. After that I would say the older Sakos would be right there as well. The newer ones, not so much anymore.

I have a Savage VLP 223 that shoots MANY loads at or < 1/2 in and a few in the high 2s to low 3s all day long in no wind conditions. With the best loads it will hold 1/2" or less for 50-60 rounds before the accuracy really drops off due to fouling.

All I have done is epoxy bed the action.

I have several Rem700's that all shoot subn 1MOA. I recently bought my first Savage and it without a doubt is the best shooter of the bunch. I haven't even bedded the action (getting a different stock) and have shot .240" and .308" and several other sub 1/2" groups at 100yds, just breaking in the barrel and playing around with it while waiting for the new stock.

If we were betting on an example of all the stock/factory guns, I would put my money on the Savage for sure.

I also have one Tikka and it shoots OK (around 1MOA) with the ammo I've fed it. Although I haven't really worked on making it better.

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
