Not sure if this will help you but I just acquired a RRA Varmit 24" Bull upper and mounted a 4-16X target scope and a Jewell 2 stage trigger. At 100 yards using inexpensive commerical ammo, shooting numerous(10+) 5 shot groups, about 50% of the groups were under 1", the rest were under 2". A couple of 3 shot groups were .5 inch. This is shooting from a bench rest with sand bags.

Exactly right.

I'm happy to say that I've owned many that were more accurate than me... LOL. I like to keep them that way, but within $$ reason. MANY a High Power match (including Camp Perry) have been won with virtually "out of the box" rifles.

As someone else here (who's name I forget) (I guess I've been reading too many of your posts, Big Bore, lol) says, "It's the singer, not the song". Spend money on those things that contribute to consistancy, practice with that consistant shooting rifle, and you'll be better off.

ie: Will a new $450.00 bbl improve my scores by subtracting 1/4 inch from my groups ?? ONLY if that is the limiting factor
