Standard 16" 6.8 SPC HBAR barrel, not chrome lined

YHM Free Float Rails

Bill Springfield 4lb Trigger Job

LaRue SPR Scope Mount

Leupold Mark 2 3x9 Scope

Handloaded Ammunition shooting Nosler 110 Grain Accubond, Hornady Brass, Rem 7 1/2 primer, H322 Powder

The smallest groups I can get is 1 3/4 at 100 yards shooting from a rest. Just wondering if I should be doing better than this or not.

Have you already done a lot of tweaking of your handloads to find the load that your rifle likes best? If not, I guarantee you will find a load that gets better accuracy. The odds of finding your rifle's favorite load on your first try are pretty slim.

Try a few different powders and bullets. I wouldn't expect bigger groups than right around 1-1.5 MOA from a load tuned to a rifle.

All of the above- try different loads, powder, bullets etc.

Also, what brand is the barrel?
