Re: Right Out Of The Box----

Just purchased a 111 LRH in 300 WSM. Took it out to the range yesterday and was very impressed with the accuracy. Shot around 3/4 inch with the handloads I had. Think it will do better as the barrel breaks in.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I have had about half of what is on that list over the years, but have to go with Remington.My first one was a 760 BDL in 30-06.Put a scope on it loaded what the reloading book said was the accuracy load and went to the range.A guy was setting up next to me with a 6mm ppc he had just got back for some gunsmith who told him it would shot one hole at 100 yards.It shot 1/2 in.My pump shot one hole.I have quite a few Remingtons now and every one of them will shoot 1/2 in or better and the only thing I have done to them was lighten the trigger.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I am fortunate to be able to spend lots of time at the range. I was president for a term.

I see lots of new rifles come through.

I don't own any Savage. I've shot them, I've worked on them.

The Savages in general seem to be the most accurate 'out of the box' with factory loads.

In other brands it seems to be rifle to rifle.

Of course there is a significant effect on pole from the pure number of rifles out there. Remington and Savage are the majority. I consider Cooper a custom. The Tika T3 Light in 308 I shot last week end was 1/2 MOA with real crap ammo.

Another sight I frequent does a little more analysis on new guns. To a manufacturer they almost always make the grade but when one won't shoot they don't pull their punches. Reviewing past articles, same caliber, same factory ammo, Savage seems to edge out the others.

Refined the hand loads on my 300 WSM and this is what I am getting now at 300 yards.
