Believe it or not my Marlin 1895gs in 45-70 groups under an inch, even with me behind the trigger. It has shot several groups all shots touching, and I got a doe with it at about 285-290 yards. Ranged at 280 and shot her as she was walking back into the woods. Squirrel loads shoot unbelievably well, 405 grainer moving less than 1000 fps.
My Savage 7mm RM shoots well too, considering my handloads certainly aren't stellar. I shot a 3 shot group under .25 inches last weekend, I can't find the target now. I'm using some old Speer 160 grain Mag-Tips I was given, with Federal brass and 64.1 grains RL22. No doubt I probably have some runout issues, over Christmas break I'm building a real reloading bench though, instead of using a slightly wobbly work bench.
Some 200 yard groups from 7mm and 45-70
100 yards off bags with 45-70 (it kicks, probably could shoot better with a better shooter)
25 yards with my squirrel load, 5 shots.
Here's the 7mm group. Best I've shot so far from it. Other shots are at 200 yards prone and the big holes are 45-70 at 290 prone. Unfortunately I adjusted the scope the wrong way so the shots are waaay high.
