Default what's your most accurate deer rifle with factory loads

Title says it. I like to see when some $500-$700 guns are more accurate than higher end models!

.243 Sako Forester--- However, it was just a little bit more than your price range! That's 10 shots with Sierra Game Kings. I now reload with Hornady 100 grain BTSPs with the same results and a lot cheaper.

Off the top of my head, I'd say it's pretty even between two Winchester M70s I own, both in .270. Each has shown excellent accuracy with Plain Jane Winchester ammo. 150gr PPs for the 1960 Featherweight (4X scope) and 130gr PPs for my new M70 JOC tribute (2-7 scope). Both have given groups of 3/8" or better with that ammo. Doubt I will search any further for new loads.

However, as already mentioned above, neither one is a "bargain" priced rifle.

Not my most accurate but most impressive is my Savage 220f.

Sub MOA from a shotgun.

Yeah, It is a game changer in a shotgun only state.

Even more impressive it seems that its not just a case of me getting a good one. These guns are producing sub moa results consistently.

My Weatherby Mark V Ultralight 280 Rem is the best out of the box rifle I've ever seen, but it doesn't qualify here.
What does qualify is my Rem Model 7 in 7/08.
That little gem shoots just about anything into nice little groups.
It particularly likes my handload of 145 grain GrandSlams and 49.5 grains of RL19.

140 grain factory CoreLokts shoot almost as good.
