Re: question about tac rifles
Saying "Tac Rifle" is like saying "4 wheel drive truck" It can mean anything from a custom barreled custom, stocked gun with bells and whistles to a stock rifle finished in black w/ heavy(er) barrel.
The big diffrence comes in the barrel twist. Varmint guns are essentialy the same rifle but with twist rates to handle light bullets. Tac rifles are usualy set up for the bigger long range bullets.
Depending on the MGFR and model will depend on the stock. Remmy PSS gets you a wide fore grip HSP w/ a double palm swell. Savage get's you a black plastic rifle stock, or a Choat/Plaister Ultimate Sniper or a Mac A-2 stock. Others have other variations those are just off the top of my head.
As 6BRGuy said just cuz it has a heavy barrel doesn't mean it will shoot better. It will shoot it's average over a longer string of fire due to the heavier barrel sucking up more heat and deflecting less.
I have a feather weight hunting rifle that shoots .0's and .1's for 3 cold bore rounds. A five round 5 minute string will get me one 3 rnd hole and two more holes w/i 2". IMHO, perfect, for a hunting rifle. My Tac,Target,LR rifle holds .3's for a twenty shot group.
