    Where is Lonewolf when we need him?

    I know I’m a little late on this one but if you are speaking about Don Mayo ( LoneWolf ) I am very sorry to say he passed away last year. I would say that’s probably why you all have not seen him on here for some time. Don was a good friend of mine and he went by the user name LoneWolf here and ODA726 on Snipers Hide…
    Don is greatly missed…

    Thank you for sticking this post. It's the second post I read since joining the forum a few hours ago.
    I think it's the best thread of any forum that I've ever come across as of yet and the truth resonates like a tuning fork.
    Thank you Nate and thank you all for freely sharing that which you worked so tirelessly to obtain.
    I look forward to reading and learning more here.

    Amazing post Nate, and thanks to the OP for asking that question. I bought a 700 ADL in .308 this summer and love it. So far the only change has been a Nikon optic and adjusting the trigger to a lighter setting, snap caps will be here tomorrow. After reading this thread, I am quite confident in my original plan of shooting the hell out of it to know what I can do before making any changes. I have a Lakefield .22LR that will be getting a ton of use to work on my mechanics.

    Great thread for a new guy.

    Great thread!
    My view, everyone is correct. Not trying to sit on the fence here. Because everything mentioned can contribute to accuracy (to a greater or lesser degree). Some people prefer to tackle elements A, B and C for example. While another may opt for elements C, D, E because they hate element A - reloading for example, and also has more funds available.
    I bought a 700 SPS Varmint in 308 early 2015, and had very little experience with 308's. 3 biggest things that made a diference for me..
    1) practice - dry firing included - on high magnification to exagerate isues with movement, flinches, trigger pull etc.
    2) Glass - some decent repeatable tracking optics on a solid base. I found Sightron good value for money.
    3) Reloading - Im still amazed at the difference between, for example, PPU 147gn factory ammo, and reloaded SMK155 on fired brass. Maybe my gun is fussy but I can easily see a 1/2MOA improvement every time I re-run the 2 cartridges side by side using 5 shot groups . Even tried batches with same SMK loads on fired and unfired brass, unfired brass consistently 1/4MOA worse. Reloading saved me money and improved accuracy. Probably better to start here IMHO. Allows more of item 1. and more smiles

    Gun is standard. I also go back and train with a spring air rifle sometimes when I feel my form is getting lazy. It's a bitch to shoot well without a good repeatable hold, trigger pull etc.

    The three most important things pertaining to rifle accuracy are ......the barrel.....the barrel...and the barrel. Everything else, though important, is less.
