Past Article - Factory Rifles - An Overview of 2008-2009

Written by Nathan Foster on March 9th, 2009.      0 comments

Have just published another new article - Factory Rifles - An Overview of 2008.

In this article, I give an overview of the rifles we encountered last year with our Rifle Accurising Services, Long Range Tutorial Hunts and Guided Hunting and share the general goings on at Terminal Ballistics Research.

In my Dummies Guide to Rifle Accuracy article, I wrote that on average, I was seeing an 80% failure rate regarding the ability of factory produced rifles to group within an inch at 100 yards. Yesterday, my wife Stephanie informed me that for 2008, we only had one hunting client with an accurate rifle. The worst rifle we encountered during 2008 produced groups of between 14 and 18 inches at 100 yards!

Of the problem rifles we worked on during 2008, the faults could be divided into two categories. The first category was rifles of sound design but with typical bedding problems (i.e. no bedding) and was easily rectified. The second category of rifles was those that suffered flaws within their design. These were either extremely difficult to rectify or in some cases, impossible without major modifications. A few rifles had a mix of both category 1 and category 2 problems.
