Default Need help on a bet: More Accurate Rifle

My friend says that his mossberg atl bolt action 308 cal is more accurate than a remington model 700 bolt action in 308 cal and another friend says that the savage 308 cal bolt action is more accurate can someone clear this up?

Personally I'd make a date with the range!

There's no way of knowing until they shoot side by side. Due to manufacturing tolerances every rifle is different. Also are they shooting the same factory load, different factory loads, or carefully worked up handloads? How old are the rifles? What scope are they wearing? Sounds like a fun day at the range to secure bragging rights.

Get all 3 of the rifles,buy a box or two of ammo and take them to a range.Let each person fire all of the rifles and compare targets.

depends on the rifle id say, the atl isnt a high end gun, at least mine. id say depending on the model the Remington or the savage, but a gun can be bad if the shooter is a poor shot as well

Stalkingbear hit it. Take it to the range and see, there is no other way to tell.

I would say that in my experience, that the Remington is one of the most accurate production rifles made today. Years ago I would have said Model 70 Winchester, until the company went through all of the different owners. The new Savages do have a very nice trigger set up. Firearms companies are doing very well at making models at modest prices that are very serviceable for the average hunter. Most fellows I know only put a box or so of rounds through their hunting rifles per year, making the new, less expensive models a good choice for them. I'll stick with my custom Czech Mauser in 7mm Remington Mag. Not the most efficient cartridge, but the deer, hogs,elk, and bison, I have taken with it, did not seem to notice. Enjoy shopping and trying out several rifles if you are able, just lots of fun. Good shooting.

Jeff
