Right Out Of The Box----

Please Help!

I was reading a long argument as to what is the most accurate hunting rifle out of the box.

Lest see what a poll says

Please vote. Not your thoughts but your experience.

If you wish also state why you think it's so.

Thanks!

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

My Cooper 52 in 6.5x284 out of the box consistently shoots .25 MOA or better. It took very little load development and is not as particular about component changes as several of my other rifles. It holds zero, hot, cold, clean, or dirty. The balance, workmanship, and smoothness will stand with many customs. I have had several factory rifles that were accurate, but I have usually had to modify to get them to my liking. Maybe I got lucky, but based upon seeing the performance of a few of my friends Coopers, I don't think so.

I to have a cooper that shoots unbelievably well. As good as my customs, but then again it pretty much is a custom. $1750 price tag for my 308 repeater.

I've seen their price tag, it's up there; but then again they're nice looking rifles and shoot great from what I've read.

Yes, they are up there, but one day looking at the price of the glass I was putting on some of my LR rifles I said why not try one......like the good glass, well worth the investment. Don't get me wrong, I have some really good shooters and glass for for half the bucks. Just had to invest the time and work with them to get them right.

I bought this used Savage 110 in .270 Win for $199 (w/o base ans scope) for the action for a project last year but the darn thing shoots 1/2 MOA at 100 yards with factory ammo. Harvested WT doe at 200 yards first time out last year. All I did was adjusted the trigger pull to 2.5 lbs.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

The TikkaT3 Lite's shoot very well right out of the box, especially for such a lightweight packing rifle. I've never owned a savage so can't compare to them. Owned a number of Ruger 77s, Rem 700s and Win 70s. Tikka's outperformed them. 0.75" and better at 100 yards could be expected with hand loads.
