+1 with Ridge Runner. Like a .17 HMR, I've yet to see a 7-08 that wouldn't shoot MOA accuracy or better. I've shot them out of Rems, Savage, Browning and Tikka and every one shot great.

Had a concern with my Sako A7.

Turned out to be a broken mount.

Back to shooting sub MOA with manufactured ammo.

Thanks for asking. I did float the barrel all the way to the action and changed the aluminum lug out with a stainless steel lug I bought online. With either Remington Core-Lokts or Hornady SST Superformance the T3 will hold 3 shot groups under and inch pretty easily. I also torqued the action screws to 55 in. lbs. This rifle is a delight to carry and shoot. The SST drops feral hogs like crazy. I'm really pleased with this rifle now.

Good to hear. Floating the barrel can certainly make a difference on some rifles. On one of my rifles took it from 1.5" to .5" groups. Glad you got it worked out
