I also have a Remington 740 in 30-06. I must agree it is not the "most" accurate rifle I have shot. And not what one would call a 1 MOA rifle. But it is designed to be a hunting rifle and due to it's age does not have all the improvements of some of the modern rifles. But 2 to 2 1/2 inch groups (Zero from the bench) at 100 yards is good enough for deer or other game hunting. Of course a lot of it has to do with selection of quality ammunition for the rifle. Also it is imparative you keep it clean! What caliber is your 740?
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
