My 243 is definitely my most accurate, but my 223 and 204 are very close. My 22-250 is accurate, but not as consistent.

Have 2,
My 308 t3 lite shoots simple Federal blue box 150's just about in the same hole at 100 yards. 5 shot group at 100.

Also have a 7mm rem mag T3 lite but havent shot it that much to make determination.

Of the 13 or so I've owned,the best were a 270 Win I currently have and a 7 Rem mag I don't. Don't ask. I do stupid chit with regularity. The least accurate was a 338 Win mag. Second place goes to a 30/06. Bear in mind, the bad ones were MOA. The best will easily do 1/4 MOA. Shooting in the twos with regularity out of the box for less than a grand is my kind of rifle.

To clarify. I've owned;
22/250
243
25/06
270 Win
7 Remmy mag
30/06
300 WSM
338 Win mag.
Some doubles and a triple in there.
i have only owned 3, a .243, 7-08, .270win.... the 270 was the best out of the bunch for me too, it loved the sst's and shot them better than i could shoot... the .243 was the least accurate, but still an excellent shooting rifle.... i was never bummed out about it's accuracy, but the .270 and 7-08 were just lights out with almost any ammo.

i also had a sako a7 roughtec pro, which is more tikka than sako, in 7rem mag, and it was a tack driver as well... just recently let that go

1-10 twist .223 is most accurate. 1-8 twist .22-250 is accurate but not as accurate as the .223.

I’ve owned 8 Tikkas. Still have 7 of them. They’ve all been really accurate. The 7mag is super accurate too but I’ve realized how much work I’d need to be proficient with the heavier hitters. The 22lr, 223, 6.5CM (2), and 308 (2) have all shot fantastic and have never shown any issues. It would be hard to pick the most accurate of those I just listed. With good ammo they’re about the same.

I have 2. Once in 270 Win and the other in 30.06. Both are sub-moa guns, but the 270 is the most accurate for me. I've been shooting Barnes Vor-tx in 130 grain out of it. The 30.06 I am still trying to decide on the 168 Vor-TX or the 165 grain Nosler Accubonds. Both shoot extremely well in the gun.

Do you still have these? How does the .30-06 handle the TTSXs?
