most people report < 1MOA.


YMMV

Most of the DPMS people hang out in Variants, as thats where Non Armalite AR-10® 308 discussions are.

It really depends on you and your ammo choices but mine and others will shoot moa or better at 100yrds.

At least -1 MOA with decent ammo. My AP4 shoots -1 MOA with Match if I do my job.

And 1.20 MOA when I don't

You will want to replace the trigger. I put a RRA Nation Match 2 stage. She will hold 1 inch or better all day long with good ammo (168gr or 175 gr). I have not shot it out passed 100 meters yet. I will be up at Camp Grayling on the 1000 meter range the end of August to stretch it out.

Depends on the ammo. if you are shooting surplus you have to fire a bunch of rounds to get any two holes to touch each other. the above reports are with more expensive or hand loaded ammo.

With the LR308 the only limiting factor is the ammo , the scope and a match trigger (3lbs) .I can tell you that with "bench rest" case prep using 168 and 175 match kings CCI BR large rifle primers,winchester cases,Varget and my 6x24 Sightron
Target scope I have shot a lot of groups at 100 yards that are 1/2 inch or better
Using harris Bi-Pod and Protector rear bags going prone or from a steady
bench rest
If you don't reload the Federal GM 168 and 175 will shoot almost as well,
also Black Hills Match ammo in same weights will do the same
Properly set up the LR 308 has outshot many "Tactical" rifles I have seen at
the range,could be that the weight and semi-auto action soaks up much of the
recoil making the rifle very easy to shoot. Remember in a bolt gun we have
many factors influencing accuracy that the LR does not have like bedding,stock
balance , barrel pressure on stock or free float ,etc
