What kind of accuracy can be expected form a Rem. 700 ADL in .30-06 @ 100yds? I'm trying to evaluate my accuracy, but I don't know what my rifle's capabilities are.

Assuming it is a box stock rifle, probably somewhere between 1 and 2 MOA with good ammo. A simple trigger job will help alot with consistency. also try some different bullet weights to find the one your rifle likes, the lighter weight barrels seem to be a little more sensitive to different weights than the heavier barrels. Hope this helps

I believe Remington gives a 1 MOA accuracy guarantee with all their rifles.

A call to Remington on their 800 line to talk to a customer rep would answer your question.

TEL: 1-800-243-9700

I would expect 1.5 - 2.0 MOA for a thin barreled 700 ADL synthetic. You may get better and you may get worse, thats the game we play with mass produced rifles!!

Tikka is the one offering the 1 MOA guarantee... Hopefully once the dust settles with building the SC1A2 I'll have time (and money) to get that tikka t3 Varminter for review. I'm thinking in .30-06

they are hunting rifles not match rifles
generally they can shoot minute of deer :)
you could get a good one that shoots better or one that doesnt shoot as well
you could get a good one that shoots well blow 1 moa but you could get one not as accurate maybe even as bad as 3-4 moa
every rifle is diffenrt and each one will like differnt loads more than others so its really always hard to say

how are you grouping with yours?
what position you shoot? from a bench? are you shooting with iron sights or is your rifle scoped?

According to a service rep. at Remington (about 3 weeks ago) they only guarante a 3" group at 100 yards (3 MOA+/-) with all guns except the custom shop guns.

I was also told that a trigger job voids all warranty, same goes with glass bedding. If your gun has an adjusted trigger it must be removed before it is shipped to them.

its reasonable to expect your rifle to shoot better than that
mine came out of the box shooting 1/4 moa after initial break in but dont expect that every Remington 700 will nor every Remington 700 Police heh i got lucky
