Any recommendations on a 1/4 minute .223 rifle?
Now that's the answer I was looking for just some platform people have had luck with. Of course I'm aware there's a lot of factor. I'm just talking about hardware and ammo. I can worry about the rest when it comes to shooting.Sniper03 said:Rock River 20" A-4 Varmint Rifle. I have had two of them and both shot a 1/4 and 1/2 MOA groups when the old man was having a good day being human and all! Of course a good friend needed my first one real bad after witnessing it shoot. So I just replaced it last fall with another one in Green Hardware that shoots equally as well. It was done several times with both rifles using Federal P223E HP BT 55 gr. ammo. I have had people think I was stretching the truth until they got one, or seen it at my range. I will also be using the new one for prairie dogs as well.
I am sure they may be other weapons that are capable but I have only had my Rock River Arms Varmint Rifles do it in the AR platform in the 223/5.56. A 40X Remington, or SAKO Varminter for example will also do it. However to get that accuracy you are going to have to have good quality ammunition, a good rest w/ (Bag Rest), calm day and your stuff together being human as I mentioned! Some days just do not work out if you know what I mean!
What he said is spot on ^^^^^^ I have shot 1/4" groups 50% of the time with my 308 AIAW folder but don't consider it a true 1/4" rifle since it won't do it regularly. The aggregate of all the 5 shot groups I have shot is 0.31" so I consider it a 3/10" inch rifle.Remember, there is a BIG difference between 1/4 MOA and consistent 1/4 MOA.
Consistent 1/4 will require a bench rest rifle. Consistent 1/2 MOA can be easily achieved by most of the quality AR-15 match grade rifles.
Remember too that this level of accuracy will also require a top quality scope. the $99.95 Wally world special won't cut it.
