What is your most consistently accurate caliber?

I am curious on what your consistent groups are with some of the favorite calibers you shoot. Ex. I have a 260 that has shot .146" five shot group at 100yds. but it isn't a consistent .1" rifle more like .3-.4" rifle. My 6mmDasher however is a consistent .1 rifle. 105 berger hybrids with 33.2grs of RL15 igniting it with a 450 primer.

My 260 is built for 140's but I chose 130s because of a theory I was taught by a successful shooter. Your bullet weight to powder charge along with the velocity is directly correlates to agge. accuracy.

Re: What is your most consistently accurate caliber?

The bench rest matches I have been to they load at the table the load changes as the day goes on. The target and temp tells them what to do on the 100 and 200 yard matches I seen. They use tight necks just knock the primer out dump the powder in and seat the bullet. May change COL or powder if conditions changes call for it. 6mm PPC is all they used at 100-200,

Thanks,Keith

22LR out of my 10/22, no BS it shoots one ragged hole no matter what every time.

I've never seen a 375 H&H that would not shoot well at moderate ranges. The 300 H&H's have been good to me as well.

Re: What is your most consistently accurate caliber?

well we're talking regular rifles with regular chambers and standard cartridges I guess. That for me would be a .222 remington without hesitation. I've yet to ever see one that wasn't sub half inch at 100 yards. (five shots)

there are still a small handfull of folks using them in benchrest even today. I think it's very close to a 22PPC with the edge being to the PPC. The PPC will handle heavier bullets better if that matters much. Kinda like to try a .222 improved with a .244 neck and 30 degree shoulder someday before I finally croak.
