Remington 700BDL with Winchester 120 grain PEPs. But that's the only ammo it shoots well. It shoots them into one hole at 100 yards. Everything else it shoots terrible.

I also have a Savage in 308 Win that shoots great.

My 300 Weatherby shoot under an inch at 100 yards with handloads. I have not shot a factory load out of that gun in 13 years. For $75 a box, I just can't do it.

Are you talking 25/06 and WW 120 grain PEP?
I used that load in a Ruger 77 bull barrel back in the late 70s early 80s on antelope, deer, coyotes, etc.
Awesome accuracy. Deadly terminal performance.
Great bullet.

I am not much of a bench shooter but I have a Savage 110 in 25/06 that put the last 5 shots touching in a 1 inch bulls eye at 100 yards on its first box of Federal Premium 117 grain. I figured that was good enough for government work so I quit sighting it in at 100 and moved back to 200, lined up the BDC and it put a hole in the same 1 inch Bull at 200 yards. This was off a concrete bench, out of a vice, calm wind, and 70 degrees at sea level but the rifle shoots better than I do and keeps meat on the table. It’s a Nikon Pro Staff 4x12x50 on top by the way, not an expensive combination but a killin machine.

Sorry. Yes, .25-06.

Also have a Sako 30-06 that will drive tacks with core-lokts.

I think about every rifle I have shoots better than I can.

H&r .444, Rem 700 223, Savage 10 308, savage bmag .17 wsm, ruger 10/22, savage 64 .22 , browning BL-22

They all seem to be dead on if I do my part. I guess Ive never really viced them down to see which ones are the most accurate. I worry more about what I'm doing right/wrong.

Seems like even the budget rifles these days shoot sub moa if the shooter does their part.

Most accurate rifle is my dad's weatherby Mark v in 257 wby. But we use handloads 117 grain sierria btsp. All my other rifles shoot good with factory ammo.

Rem 700 in .280. Using win balistic tip 140gr. I am grouping touched bullets at 300yds. I am working on building my own loads now no testing yet.
