I need to get to the range again with my Marlin X7 in .308. The rifle shoots like a dream (I didn't have my scope installed to be square with the rifle) and I'm looking forward to seeing how it shoots now that I have it set up properly. At 50 yards it was a tack driver even with the scope installed improperly. I'll post a range report once I get it zeroed for 100 then 200 yards.

Had a similar experience with my TC 30.06

Purchased several boxes of premium ammo to see which load and bullet weight grouped the best. After being disappointed with all the premium loads I'd brought I was about to call if a lemon when I noticed a half a box of old Remi Cor Lock 150's in the bottom of my range bag.

I sent 3 downrange and was eased with a slightly sub MOA group, about .85 or so.

I Zero's to this load and never looked back. I only hunt white tail with this gun so 150's are fine.

Nothing better than great accuracy with the cheapest most available load on the market.

Tack

Tackle, amen. Just think, it was not long ago when guys had to buy high end factory or custom rifles and develop their own loads to get that kind of accuracy. Today, any guy can get an entry level rifle from Savage, TC, Weatherby/Howa, Marlin et al and shoot under an inch with inexpensive factory ammo.

A strong testament to how far we've come in precision engineering.

Both the entry level rifles and factory ammunition have improved in quality.

There is a difference between the Howa action and the vangaurd, not the same.
It is made by Howa, but a Weatherby design.

JPatterson, I think the Vanguard and Howa 1500 actions are both variations of the Howa, with the exception being the Howa does not have the cap on the back of the bolt. If you look at the Weatherby and Legacy Sports (Howa's US importer) they both introduced the three position safety and two stage trigger at the same time. Their stocks, however, are different.

I would have to disagree...
My 1960's Weatherby MK.XXII out shoots all my friends new "spiffy" customized 10/22's (Even with the Remington ammo, I think im the only person who actually likes that ammo)

A friend was shooting my 1903 and said it was every bit as accurate as his modern fully customized Rem 700..
His 700 has a custom stock, free-floated barrel, trigger, handloaded .308 rds..
My '03 was just in its military configuration with some '77 Greek surplus rds, and he managed to hit a 1" piece of rod at 400 yds, on the first shot!!


Arent both rifles (Howa/Weaterby) Just variations of a Mauser, just like almost every other bolt action??
