Grouping on the R1


Recommended Posts

My .30-06 R1 is very old, 20" barrel and shoots 165 and 180's really well (1" group max). Federal blue box soft points, Hornady Interlocks shoot the best in 165 or 180 gr. I hunt with copper, and get decent groups with Barnes TTSX and Federal Trophy Copper too. The rifle is not terribly finicky with ammo, but there are definitely ammo's it doesn't like. I found that 150 gr. shoot terrible, no matter what brand. I also have .300wm and .338 R1's and they're all pretty consistent with the .30-06.
