I have 2 different modern R700 bolt's in .308 and .300 win mag , almost identical configurations. The.308 is a 26" heavy Varmint , and the 300WM is a 26" heavy fluted stainless Sondero. My 308 is just SO forgiving with loads as far as accuracy , I can load any bullet from 155 to 178gr and my good ol W748 powder and as long as my velocity is around 2540 fps it's a consistent MOA rifle @ 200 meters. Like most rifles I have shot and amazing .2 MOA on certain outings but can't brag that I can maintain .2 MOA "all day long". My 300WM however is a very finicky barrel to shoot accurately. I struggled for a year trying to find MOA , started out with 180's , 190's and 200's using IMR 4350 and R22 and nothing impressive was only shooting about 2-3 moa. Then I got a tip from another forum to try the real heavies , specifically 208 AMax's and H1000 powder , and holy smokes I quickly settled in on consistent MOA groups. I have a Savage FP10 in 223 that's an amazing shooter as well, a very forgiving barrel as far as loads. I also have a Yugo refurbished K98 8mm Mauser that is an absolute LOUSY shooter, best I have yet to observe is 5 MOA with very wild single fliers that I just can't figure out why.One of the first and best things my dad taught me in my edumacation on reloading was "1 gun - 1 load".
Goes for semi-auto pistols, revolvers, any and all rifles. Period.
I have a pair of .222 Rem bolt rifles. One is a circa 1953 Sako heavy barrel 1:12 twist tack driver that has spolied a lot of young kids shooting something with virtually zero recoil and 1/2 inch groups all day, and a custom built mannlicher on a 1960s Sako action and a 1:10 twist Douglas barrel. Mannlicher shoots 3/4 inch groups hot or cold, rain or shine. The "sweet" load in each rifle is totally different! And the 1:10 twist loves the 69 and 70 grain bullets a LOT. It would be my "live off the land" and "trunk" gun before even my SOCOM.
