Ok, so what group sizes can be expected with those at 100 yards?

I was thinking of getting one, but wanted to be the entry level one - whatever model I can get the cheapest. Something maybe for next year, but I was just doing some thinking...

Sorry got carried away

Mine shoots .46 to .48 pretty much all the time I have shot a few in the .31
to .33

In laymens terms all 3 holes are touching and inside each other..

I have seen a PBR xp with close to the same groups

I bought a PBR from Tanner Guns with the 24" barrel for $650. What a bargain as this turned out to be the most accurate rifle of this type I've ever owned. I put a Zeiss 6X scope in Talley Rings and the rifle will shoot quarter size groups all day at 100 yards with Federal Gold Medal Match. The overmolded Hogue stock is extremely comfortable and bedded very well. You can't go wrong with one of these rifles.

I tried three different loads in my FN PBR 20" rifle using a Leupold mark 4 3.5X10PR scope, I wanted to see what the rifle could do with more than just a three shot group. All shots were taken from 100yards from a prone position using a back pack as a rest. The temprature was 95F and there was little cross wind

168grain Federal Gold Medal Match 7 shots @ 100yards, used my first three shots as sighter shots.


168grain Hornady Match 10 shots @ 100 yards


168grain Black Hills Match 10 shots @ 100 yards


All in all i'd say my gun likes either the federal gmm or hornady match the best.

I bought a PBR in 22" barrel from CDDN acouple weeks back. The groups are close to what the others have shown. I have had to much coffee to drink each time I have gone to the range. Makes for interesting groups. I paid $600.00 for mine and love it. I do wish I had the green Houge stock though.
