    Good day;
    Can anyone share some groupings one can expect for a L61r?
    I would just like to have some inputs on accuracy.
    Thank you

    How other rifles shoot is completely irrelevant to how yours will shoot. Most Sakos will shoot under 1.5 MOA, so if yours doesn't you may need to look for a cause & apply a remedy. Why haven't you shot yours to see how it shoots??? Seems to me that would give you a definite "input on accuracy".

    Hi Paul.
    Yes you are right., and I do agree.
    I was just curious on typical whats possible with a L61R with perhaps factory or handloads.

    Locally in South Africa its got an good reputation.

    My rifle is currently in storage.

    I’ve had around 20, several 270’s. All shot less than in inch, some 1/2 shooters. This is all with hand loads.

    I got 1/2 MOA with a 7mm Rem Mag Mannlicher carbine using factory ammo. To say I was impressed is an understatment.

    Paul has it right. All things being equal your gun will tell you what it likes. At the same time the best rifle will not shoot with lousy ammo.
    I don't own an L61r but I do have a couple of L461s and a L579 and the two 461s don't shoot the same ammo to the same accuracy. Guns are like women: you gotta find out what they like.
