Default What is your most accurate firearm?

This isn't a poll, or a thread to divide folks between manufacturers ... just a simle question to find out everyones' most accurate firearm.
If you have important info such as, ... custom barrel, pillar bedded, glassbedded, please include that.

My most accurate fiream is a sporterized M98 Mauser in .243 Winchester. Even though though magazine is for as long action and the .243 rounds don't feed smoothly if you cycle slow, the gun just shoots where I point and is capable of pretty amazing accuracy with my handloads.
Whats yours?

I'm going to have to go with my CVA Optima Elite .50 smoker. I shoot 90gr Blackhorn209 under Hornady SST's. Out to 100 yards, I'd go head to head with lots of you CF shooters out there (probably not wingbone hehe). My .50 ML barrel prints tighter at 100 than the .223 barrel I have for it.

I also have a Thompson Center Black Diamond XR that shoots as good as most center fire rifles at 100 yards. I shoot 110grs. of 777 and a 45 caliber saboted Hornady 300gr. XTP JHP (Mag). As far as my most accurate rifle, thats hard to answer, I wont keep a gun that does not shoot extremely accurate and I have some very accurate rifles. It pretty much boils down to how I am shooting that day and what gun I am shooting.

Browning A-bolt in 280 Rem. 5/8 MOA shooting 5 shots using 160 gr accubonds in front of a heavy dose of H4350. The gun has posted many groups under 1/2 MOA with about 5/8ths the norm.

Sako L691 in 300 WBY with 4.5-14X 40mm Leupold Vari-X III.

On a bad day I can get a .75 inch three shot group (center to center). On a good day I can get a .25 inch three shot group. The rifle could shoot better if I would do my part better.
