It's like anything, it may it may not. To get the most out of any situation is to find the load that the barrel likes, in other words to experiment with powders, primers, bullets etc. To progress from there is to glassbed, true the action, sleeve the bolt and the list is endless. It all deppends on what accuracy do you want. You should be able to get 1.5" from a factory rifle and less if you'r lucky.
