That depends on your meaning of accuracy. I can hold a 20" group with 20 rounds at 500 meters.

That was with match ammo. If it isn't you'll have inconsistant chamber pressure and will see highs and lows the further back you go.

5" at 200 meters isn't bad.

Depends on the barrel you are using, what twist rate, length, optics/open sights etc...
With a 20 inch 1 in 9 twist on a Bushy V Match and good optics, 600 yard hits on a man size target are not hard to make.
Stopping power at that distance would be minimal however.
For just punching holes in paper, it would work.
As stated, that's using a 62 grain BTHP match round, so ammo selection is the key.

Colt MTC HBar II 16" 1- 9 w/Leupold 4.5-14x40 LR w/Varmint reticle
