How bout a nice 22/ 410 over and under? Practical and still a rifle technically! I still would choose the Ithaca Shotgun with a Buck-buster barrel. Thats a Rifle also when I throw a couple Brenneke slugs down it! The Mk 19 is a rifle of a different caliber; It has belted metal cartridges, the barrel has rifling; its a short heavy longgun, the bullet just blows up when it hits, a minor detail! Prolly the only weapon I discussed thats not a Rifle is Grandads Model 11 but she will throw a slug faster than most my others, just not very accurately; watch out if it hits you, its gonna leave a mark for sure!

Yes indeed, just a bit of drift but a guys gotta have some fun here and there!

as WebFos said, accuracy is relative. everyone has different degrees or definitions of what they consider accurate, especially when talking about rifles and cartridges.

a target shooter getting a 3/4" group at 600 yards would consider that very poor accuracy, while a hunter geting the same groups at the same distance would be thrilled to death at that level of accuracy. a military sniper able to achieve 10" groups on a man sized target at 1500 yards would probably think that was acceptable accuracy as long as it was consistent.

as far as ourselves, it also depends on how much we as a shooter are willing to do to achieve our personal degree of accuracy. many do a lot of shooting and practice, while many of us will tinker with our rifles, and many reload to get that final little bit from our rifles.

my final thoughts are that IMO, most guns are far more accurate than the pwople who own them. most of us are not capable of realizing the full potential of the guns we own, myself included. but we should never stop striving to better ouselves as shooters trying to get everything we can out of one. besides, isn't that part of what we love about shooting? the guns, the shooting and the everything associated with it.

My first shotgun was a hand me down Remington Model 11 when I was 14, I remember it had a hellofa kick for only being a 20 ga., must have been the way it cycles with the barrel sliding back several inches. The Savage over and unders would make a great survival/meat getting gun, just not what comes to mind when accuracy is mentioned. I got one when I was 16 and it accounted for several small deer, nutria and fox with the upper .222 barrel, and dove and quail with the 20 ga. lower barrel. I've been looking at one of the new synthetic stock ones in .22/.410 to keep in the truck or on the 4-wheeler.

Love the answers. Just to be clear, I am not asking what rifle I should get or what rifle is the best. I am asking simply what would YOU get, what gear would add? It could be for any reason or any purpose you wish.

One of the most accurate rifles I have shot was a friends 300 RUM Sendero with a very high dollar Swaroski. The recoil was tolerable because of the weight of the rifle as well as good brake. I kick myself for not purchasing it when he sold it. I was consistently ringing steel at 600yds.

My choice was an AIAW 308 Folder that replaced my 308 TRG 22. I don't shoot much over 600 yards hence the 308.
