picked up a used R1 in 30-06. After all the grumblings about accuracy, mine is just fine, The seiler & Beloit 180 grain FMJ the best grouping. 1 inch Hornady American white tail 150grain very good as well 2 inch or less Federal Premium 150 grain ballistic tip poor grouping well over 2'' and random. military ball ammo 4+ inch grouping. All done on sand bags. Recoil is not bad. using a Cabellas pine ridge scope may upgrade but not necessary for deer hunting.
