Re: good action for long range

I know what's in the equipment lists. None of them have shot as accurate at 600 yards as the Win. 70 has. If there's any one that's been in a rifle that's shot several 10-shot groups all under 1/4th MOA at 600 yards with some down to 1/8th MOA, let me know.

I am talking about an equipment list in the last 5 years.
And yes I know it was shot with a sling from the prone with the guy standing on his head and shooting cross dominant and the only reason it opened up to 1/8 MOA is he lost one to a 20 MPH wind shift from 3 to 9 oclock.
Do you honestly expect anyone to believe David Tubb for example gave up the most accurate rifle in the world (according to you) to shoot something less accurate (Tubbs 2k)?
So dig out that Model 70 "Wonder Rifle" go to the closest 600 yard BR match and whoop all them BR rifles and set the world record. You have just claimed repeatedly it can be easily done in real life. If what you are saying is true, and that gun shoots is as good as you claim, it will be a piece of cake.
Seeing as how the world record for 5 shots at 600 yards is around 3/4" that makes it easy for your 1/8 moa (10 shots) wonder gun, it should be simple.
When can we expect to see the new record in your name?
Also you should be able to use "Wonder Gun" to set the world record for a 4 target agg at 600 as that is right at 1". Only one small catch, the targets are all shot the same day and back to back. You will not be able to take your 4 best targets ever shot in your life and say I have a 4 target agg of 1". that means it is a real test of back to back accuracy and not the one target in a lifetime.
When you have the records to back up the "internet/once in a lifetime/someone told me about it/" groups, then you have have something real.
You might want to do some reading on modern actions. this months precision shooting has an article that has a chart showing the rigidity of actions which naturally lends to their inherent accuracy. The model 70 is second lowest but it does beat the Rem 700, and the lowest custom action is at least almost 6x more rigid and one of them is 10x.
