Most accurate stock bolt action

 What is the most accurate stock bolt action? Sick of there being nothing but politics on here .

I doubt to many here can out shoot current rev bolt actions from any of the major makers. So the answer is likely the one you shoot the best.

But I'd put a 40x against any stock bolt.😊

 What do you consider "stock"?  You're probably going to realistically put a price tag out to get the answer you're looking for.  If Accuracy International or McMillan use their proprietary actions, stocks, and barrels but cost $4500--$6500, are they still "stock"?  How about if GAP uses their proprietary action but sources the bbl and stock from another manufacturer?

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.

I have a plane Jane Weatherby Vanguard 308 that shoots better than I can hold so that's all the further I looked.

 Savage of your choice and the rest on optics is what I'd do. 1500-1800 on optics will get you places.

 40X, Sako, TRG, Styer SSG, FN A-series PBR, Cooper, CZ 550, take your pick.

 Thanks. Hmm, I thought they were a bit cheaper then that a few years ago. Uncle bought one and if I remember correctly it was 400z great gun though.

Not sure what caliber you are looking for. I just sold a Savage in 223 with the target accu-trigger. It is different than the regular accu-trigger as it can be set down to a six ounce pull. Should be pretty nice.

40x is a short action custom shop Remington.  Pretty sure they're all clip-slotted, and many of them have a solid bottom, single-shot only.

Any dealer should be able to order you a 40x but they're generally pretty slim pickings regarding availability.  I doubt there's more than 100 of them available in the wholesale channel at any given time.

i have a weatherby Vanguard in a 270 WSM
i also have a Tikka T3 in a .223
neither have done me wrong.
i can't say if either are the most accurate, but i know when i get a steady aim with either of them, something is going down.

Hold my beer while i land this walleye!!

 A 5r .308 and a vlss .223, optics play a huge role.  And I have jewel triggers.  And hand loads.

Got em!

Hard to dis the savage, Ive got a few and they are reliable and accurate. Like my Tikka's. Little higher price, Cooper makes some nice guns I think.

 I am not much of a guru but through the years it seems about any reputable gun you buy off the shelf is going to do just fine at short to intermediate distances. When you go beyond intermediate it seems for consistency reasons the fit of the stock, ammunition and optics become a bigger player. Going crazy distances then you start to need a more polished rifle than what you find on the shelves. At least for comfortable more easily obtained consistency. 

For you gurus am I really that far off on my take?

Triger, trigger, trigger, then consistency of the ammo, quality stock/action melding, and quality optics mounted in stable and straight rings/bases are as important as the rifle itself.

A clean break with little/no creep and overtravel is of the utmost importance.

Yeah I should have put that directly in but was implying that.

Even at short to intermediate that is a big help though.

A paper target @ 200-300yds will tell you things you can never learn @ 100yds.  Shooting @ 200ys a couple weeks ago showed me that @ 42x on the scope dial, I was rolling up and anticipating recoil, even on a 12# 223, as the trigger was breaking, the crosshair was racing for the bottom of the target.

I wish I had the discipline and concentration to keep my mind only on the current shot, unfortunately, that hasn't presented itself yet.  I can do it for short strings, sometimes, but eventually my mind wanders.

My 14 year old son shot his first Buck on opening day with my Remington 700 Mountain in 7mm-08 at 317 yards.  Nikon 2.5-7x32mm scope.  I've had that rifle since 1991 and it's 100% stock.

My favorite is a Remington 700 BDL Custom Deluxe in .270 that I bought in 1987 when the Twins were making their run.  Scoped with a Bushnell 5-20x40mm (Don't laugh, it works).  100% stock rifle.  Have shot a few deer with it over 400 yards.  Plenty of clean 200 to 300 yard kills.

You might have noticed that both of the rifle purchases coincide with Twins World Series wins.  Coincidence???
