I manage about 1. Moa and have been able to get a clover leaf print at a hundred but that was using a batch of reload btfmj 55 gr that I picked up at a gunshot and may have been pure luck.
it is a fine rifle and im glad I purchased it
They are great guns! I'm buying anther SPS Varmint .308 to build my son a nice precission rifle this month. I did one for my friemd with the same action/barrel and it's a solid sub MOA with any good commercial ammo.
It's not impossible to bed a plastic stock but it's so agravating to do it's almost not worth it (to me) when a Bell and Carlson Carbelite stock can be had for about $150. With a .223 which has next to no recoil it is not nessesary to go to the more expensive aluminum bedding block stocks if you don't want to spend the extra money. Fiberglass/carbon fiber/kevlar are easy to bed and a real productive upgrade. If you are getting MOA out of the gun now you can probably half that bedded to a good stock. Here is mine:
Normal group with Remington UMC (cheap stuff) .45gr HPs
