Accuracy and the required standards of given rifles are commonly exaggerated and misunderstood. Understanding the design limitations of various rifles and their required accuracy performance is not the same universal standard, nor should it be. Here, I discuss everything you need to know to have full confidence in your rifle, how to achieve the best accuracy, assess accuracy issues, and why your rifle may be more accurate than you've been led to believe.

Such a good lesson that I had to watch it again. Everything he says is spot on from my personal experience. Especially the need for consistency. I have worked out the kinks of the scope on my AR-10. Needed a "sport" scope mount, which is elevated and offset. Anyway, so, this rifle I have is really light. Before scope, 7.5 pounds "naked." Scope is 24 oz. I changed the telescoping stock on carbine tube to Magpul PRS Gen III stock on rifle tube. Adjusted the weight difference for that. All total, about 9 pounds and 14 ounces, most of that difference from 7.5 pounds is the Diamondback Tactical scope. So, it is very responsive. I was spoiled on the MVP, which is a heavy wooden stock and heavy bull barrel. Which makes sense, because it was conceived as a varmint rifle. The V in MVP stands for varmint and the first chambering was .223 Rem. So, it is also a good bench rifle. But I took it hunting this last season. Now, this AR-10 will be my hunting rifle. But I have had to learn to shoot, again. The basics. Relax, quit tensing, breathe. The recoil is minimal. With a heavy rifle buffer and the cushy pad on the PRS, it just like a pushy .223 Rem. Single finger pad on the trigger. Divorce the pressing finger from the rest of all creation. Once I did that, I was back to one inch at 100 yards, which is sub minute of deer.Tried again at 50 yards, which is the actual effective distance of where I can hunt and it is sub MOA. So, the rifle is great, the ammo is good and usable and I tried different ammos which are close enough to each other that I do not have to keep changing ammo when I try another brand. But I did have a question or observation I should have started with. Because I am not an expert. Certainly never was a sniper. But I have been fairly accurate with firearms for most of my life. Give me a good weapon and I can do great things. Anyway, so, in the age of YT where people can show their target sheets, I see a disturbing trend among mostly young people but a few others, as well, who count flyers when considering the accuracy of the rifle. Now, I can see where a flyer may have something to do with ammo. For example, trying a new ammo in a semi-auto, such as my AR-10, I did have one double feed, which is a result of over gassing. And this is after I already boosted the weight of my rifle length buffer to 6.1 oz. No need to keep chasing weights. I simply determined that one round had more gas pressure than the rest. And that was it, the rest of shooting was fine. So, I get chalking a flyer to a change in load. But most times, a flyer has to do with the shooter pulling on the trigger press. Or, in some cases, wind gusts at the location of target outside. Why don't they discount the flyer? Because many guns and many brands of ammo are shooting 1 MOA and less at 100 yards. Which is also plenty accurate for deer hunting, which is my philosophy of use.

Even those who have diverse shooting experience with long guns and handguns will fall short of shooting fundamentals at times, especially if switching from gun to gun. For instance, one’s cheek position on the stock, even if changed slightly from one string of rounds to the other, will usually cause a shift in the position of the group. That is due to the change in the angle the shooter is looking through the site (optic or iron). Subtle deviations within one’s natural / preferred shooting position are often undetectable at first, and will become big issues when attempting to connect with targets beyond 350 yards. Obviously, this cannot be helped in the field, which is why it is essential to mitigate the human factor as much as possible during the initial zero with a solid, comfortable and complete rest, ideally a large or 2 small sand bags to provide support at the fore-end and stock. If the shooter prefers to hold the fore end in against the sand bag, the downward pressure will have little to no effect on the strike of the bullet.

I've misinterpreted MOA for many years thinking in this series for 1 MOA; 50 Yards - 1/2", 100 yards - 1", 200 yards - 2", 300 yards 4", 400 yards - 8", and so on. My thinking was that the spread in grouping doubles with 100 yard distance increments out from 100 yards rather that adding 1 inch for each subsequent 100 yards. This progression is just about the best accuracy I can get. I don't recall ever shooting out to 1,000 yards but would never expect to hit much of anything let alone within 10 inches. While I know others who are better marksmen, 300 yards is a long ways out and just about it for me. The best advice I have received from GunBlue has to do with point blank sighting-in and I now sight in for impact of 2 to 3 inches high at 100 yards depending on my rifle rather than the "inch high at 100" of my youth. Anyway, thanks again for all your advice, particularly regarding hand loading!

I've never had or loaded for a rifle that I couldn't get a handload to shoot 1.5 moa or better. I'm talking scoped bolt guns with a proficient shooter. Even the cheapest plastic stocked budget rifles can usually be loaded to 1 moa. Keep powders on hand with burn rates between h335 and 4831 and you can pretty much load anything

I learned a lot. Will watch more. Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge. If 1 MOA is one inch of deviation in 100 yds (best case definition is 1” diameter, but I think the correct definition is 1” radius) then 3 MOA rifle at 350 yds could be shooting anywhere in a 10.5” circle (best case definition ) or an 21” circle (more likely definition). I imagine the elk hopes that shooter with that rifle has a particularly good placement at 350 yds, or it could be limping away for a long time before nature takes its course. I want to listen to the ethics of that shot because it could be my math is wrong, and I would like to be corrected. Very informative YT, nonetheless.

Thank you , Thank you, Thank you for discussing the relationship between twist rate and the LENGTH of a projectile. I have an ongoing debate with some friends concerning this exact subject. They always insist that it is the weight that affects stabilization and I say it is the length. I am the only one that is a reloader and I try to explain that if you have two projectiles of similar construction that if one is heavier that it has to be longer since the caliber can not increase. For some reason they can not understand this. I think it is from seeing those charts that show stabilization as weight vs twist rates. I will be sure that they all see this video.
GunBlue490
GunBlue490 28 ditë më parë
Have them watch my video dedicated to twist rates that I did about 3 years ago. One of the factors seldom realized or understood is that bullet shapes affect length, such that a weight normally stabilized can be unduly long, due to an extremely long, slender profile, as encountered in high B.C. match bullets. Similarly, ballistic tip bullets can do the same thing.

High Gun Blue! I have some questions about practical group shooting. Always for hunting purposes. Is it necessary, recomendable to let the barrel cool down between shots? If components choice is poor and rare. What is the minimal procedure to develop a handload. I tried to shoot 3 shot groups select the lowest std deviation then adjust the seating depth,and normally less is better???than I control it at 200 yards and more or less it is aceptable for red deer.more or less a spread of 4 Inches.this with 6 power scopes .always hunting rifles. What do you think?I appreciate Thank You

Great Video! When you said sometimes your rifle won't shoot normal weight ammo. Bullet grain weight. You said try some off the wall bullet weight for that caliber. You hit the nail on the head there. My .340 Weatherby did not shoot anything great. After ALOT of time and expense. I bought a box of 185 gr. Barnes TTSX bullets and handloaded them to around 3100 fps. I went out to my range, HOLY CRAP!!!! I couldn't believe it. Accuracy was amazing. Most groups were 1". None over 1-3)16". I have a Remington 700 in .257 Weatherby Magnum. Same deal. One day I was at local gun shop and seen some factory Weatherby ammo in 85 gr. Barnes TTSX. I shot them and got groups 3)4" and less.

I definitely agree with your advice to let the barrel cool between shots. I see shooters firing one shot after another, and being satisfied with the lousy group they shot.!!! I have found that most good quality rifles will place bullet holes on paper at 100 yards in a tight group under 1 inch , if you allow the barrel to cool to ambient temperature between shots. It takes patience, but it is worth the time to do it correctly. In my opinion, anyone who just shoots one shot after another to see how a rifle is grouping is wasting his talent, and not giving the rifle a chance to really show it's ability.

Wow-what a great summary! I knew you would teach me something that I didn’t know and sure enough, bullet length-to-twist was it. I could never figure out the logic of having a heavier bullet not work as well in a fast twist. Compounded by the relative accuracy of a 105 howitzer with a 1:20 twist that scales down to a 1:2 twist for a 10.5mm...right? How in the world does my Springfield Armory 5.56 Saint need the 1:8 twist it has...and for that matter why wouldn’t 1:12 be better? The only thing that makes sense to me is the length of the bullet being too long, and having nothing to do with the actual weight of the round. Question: with all this going through my grape, the natural progression, if what I’m saying is accurate, is for the reemergence of progressive twist rifling...and even the possible application of barrel extensions that employ a progressive increase in twist to accommodate projectiles that require it??? I submit this question in the spirit of John Browning and Luke22:36 which we seem to correlate with! Shalom bshem Yeshua HaMashiach tsidkenu (Jer23:6) ✝️

In answer, "gain" twist, as progressively quicker rifling is called, has been around for decades, and is still being offered by some custom barrel makers. While it has its devotees, no evidence exists that it accomplishes anything whatsoever. If a gain twist barrel starts at 12 and completes at 10, the bullet is stabilized at 10; it does not continue acceleration beyond the last rate. If it were to do so, its rotational spin a mere several more feet down range would cause immediate disintegration. Its proponents argue that gain twist applies spin more gently, but no evidence exists that such tenderness is required. Bullet jackets either hold together at whatever RPM is imparted, or they don't, and it matters not how that RPM was imparted. 1:8 twist is a very common rate of twist in 20 inch competition barrels for those desiring to use the full range of .224" target bullet weights from 55 grains and up in CMP and other events. Slower twists are certainly advantageous for varmint barrels, where lighter bullets and higher velocities are involved, because they won't cause undue stress on thin bullet jackets. The only reason for the existence of 1:7 twist is because long, heavy, steel core military bullets cannot be driven at sufficient velocity in short M-4 barrels to stabilize correctly. My Colt 20 inch 1:7 military spec barrel has accuracy issues due to violent jacket tearing with anything but the strongest 55 grain civilian bullets. I discussed these issues in hopes of educating folks about twist, as most barrels are simply too quick for the applications they are used for.

Wonderful talk on an interesting subject. . . Another term I have heard from Instructors is "Acceptable Accuracy" and found it to be very apt. Especially in dealing with new shooters, who sometimes have unreasonable expectations. Explained simply as "what is acceptable to me, may not be acceptable to you", and vise versa. I have friends that love to shoot, but can only get out a couple of times a year, their accepted expectations are a little lower, than my friends who are pro shooters and/or hunters. . . What is really fun though, when you can get someone with unreasonable expectations, and get to rethink their expectations, accept they are "beginners", go over some basics, and then watch them improve their skills in one sitting. Oh the smiles and laughter. This is when I find people get "the hook' for shooting. At first its 20 yrs, then 50, 75, 100, then they are phoning asking when the next time they can go shooting and do I need money for ammo. Priceless. Lastly... even for myself, there are some days I have to lower my "Acceptable Accuracy" as I might have been away for a bit.

@GunBlue490 you misunderstood my meaning I think. New, factory production, rifles will pretty commonly, shoot MOA accuracy. Factory barrels, on most rifles today, at least in my experience, perform better, on average, than production barrels did in the '50's and '60's. Collected pre 64 model 70's since the eighties and the older rifles are beautifully made but were always more difficult to dial-in than my modern guns. Had an early 30-06 that never did get to MOA.

My older brother qualilfied as an NRA Distinguished Rifleman (I just made Expert) and went to the Air Force Academy to be on their Rifle Team> He said he learned from Russian rifle team that IF U kept your 2 eyeballs LEVEL it would add 2 or 3 points to your score> He used an "Off Set Bore" plate to attach to end of stock & press against barrel so that the only difference between shots was muzzle velocity so a fast bullet escaped b/4 the pressure pulse behind the bullet would react against the "Offset Bore Plate" but a slow bullet would be "Lofted" as barrel lifted slightly upward> Result was the rifle came into FOCUS at 600 yards (used a 375 H&H Magnum) He could put ALL rounds into a waste basket at 600 yards> What's an "Offset Bore"? Drill a hole thru a plate, then do a smaller hole but "Offset" .050" from center of the larger hole to generate 2 points @ 90^ for a 2 point contact w/barrel to act like a V-rest

An off topic question....Recently I came across a 98% Ruger no1 with 26" varmit barrel in 25 06 rem. I don't shot varmints, but I like the caliber for mule deer out here in the west, and love the Ruger No1 in general, the price was irresistible...The problem is the solid construction of the No 1 and the larger barrel make for a somewhat walkable rifle, but not ideal. I fortunately have several other suitable calibers and configurations to go deer hunting, the purchase was more about the the elegance of the Ruger, and the deal I got. Now for my question...I have a local gunsmith who specializes in reboring suitable rifles, 30 06. 270, 25 06, 280 etc to a 35 Whelen which I don't really need , but I do want. Do you think the No 1 with the 26" barrel is a good fit for the Whelen for class 2 and 3 big game? What twist rate would be the most efficient? I'm hoping to see a good drop in weight after the 35 caliber bore? Any input would be appreciated. A small aside, the gun is a 1999 manufacture date, and while valuable , not super collectable, yet? Based on your pervious videos I know you have sold a lot of firearms, how much does the change of caliber hurt the resale, down the road? The Smith is top flight. Thank you Sir

Shot a model 70 pre 64 Winchester in 1987 while stationed in Hawaii....nearly stacked three shots perfectly ...all within the circumference of a dime at 100 yards... couldn't believe my eyes. Wish I could still do that feat.
