This Louisiana classic is very accurate; a 3 shot group with 140 grain Nosler accubond bullets, 42 grains of IMR 4895 shot a .309" group with all 3 touching. Another 3 shot group at .580", another with 140 grain Nosler ballistic tip at .711. It likes the 140's better but it will shoot 160 grain Nosler Partitions under 1" at .776" and .848".
