I am and always will be a fan of the Rem 700 but the tree Savages that I have all shoot better than my 700s right out of the box,and are less picky about ammo used.

    My vote would be TIKKA. I've rang out 6 of them and all shot sub MOA out of the box.
    But since it's left off the list Cooper, both mine shoot great right out the box.

    Dakota arms will be the most accurate & consistent right out of the box. They are however pretty much a custom built rifle and carry a price tag to show it.

    Bought my grandson a Rossi break open 22 LR/410 several years ago.

    Its about a good as one can expect for a 200 yd shooter.

    I have to say Tikka even though it aint on the list. I personally have four of them now. .270, .308, 7mm mag and 338 win mag. All shoot sub moa with th majority of premium factory rounds I have shoved in them. The .308 is a heavy barrel varmint/tactical. It has out shot a lot of custom guns and was very easy to hand load for. She has been printing 1/2 moa groups consistently for several years now.

    The most accurate factory rifle I own is a savage 22-250. It seams to be finicky about what bullets it likes but 36 grain varmint grenades make it a tack driver. Groups with heavier bullets are terrible.
