Default Most accurate Hunting rifle out of the box?

What do you think the most accurate big game hunting rifle out of the box is these days?

Game: Whitetails, Mule deer, Elk
Caliber: 30-06 or 300 Win Mag
Distance: 20 to 400 yards

From what I have read Savage (accu trigger & stock), TC Icon, and Tikka T3 are some of the most accurate available today. What do you think?

100% fact that the savage model 1100 with accustock in .308 is the most accurate civilian avaliable gun out of the box and used period

I'll agree with that along with the Sako. But don't forget the TC Venture, as the ones I have seen will shoot 0.5 MOA.

I'm not going to say the most accurate but the Winchester M70's have really shown some fine accuracy.

Two weeks ago I shot a 2" 25 shot group. Take away 4 fliers and it brings it down to 1.3" for 21 shots. Take away a couple that are just outside and that would be 0.9" for 19 shots.

That must be true cause I read it here. I just can't get past the fugliness of Savages. I believe I'll go with Sako here.
