Anschutz 1903 MSR

Can anyone tell me what kind of group sizes I should expect with this rifle? I understand this rifle has a match action and barrel. Looking for some of your experiences with this newer version rifle?

Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide.

What is your barrel length on your 1903? Mine is 20.5 inch with Harrell Tuner. Groups after approximately 800 rounds are varying with type ammo and lot numbers. Some five shot groups at 50 yds in 0.185 - 0.210 inch with Midas + and no wind. 100 yd at 0.3 to 0.4 moa benchrest. Still looking for that Lot#!

The size of groups that can be reasonably expected should be .5" or better at 50 yards with good ammo, that is ammo that shoots well in the rifle. Bulk ammo does not qualify.

Expectations of accuracy, or rather predictions of accuracy, should be qualified. If the barrel is on the good side, then the predictions should be reasonable. There is no guarantee that each and every barrel produced by any manufacturer will be among its best. Fortunately, Anschutz barrels have a good reputation for accuracy.

I had an Anschutz 64 MSR made in 2015. It is essentially the same as the 1903 MSR, with the same receiver and barrel, but a few cosmetic changes with the stock. It was accurate and shot .5" and better at 50 yards.

The 1903 MSR is described as a match action by Anschutz. That's a bit of a misnomer, however, as Anschutz describes many (or all?) of its repeaters as "match action". The true match action rifles are the single shot 54 action models with match chambers, which are tighter than those on repeaters.

1903 MSR vs Target 1903

Penage Guy, can you tell me if the Target 1903, single-shot, with match action would perform better at 50 yards than the 1903 MSR? Looking for the best accuracy out of a rifle, but I don't know which of these two would perform better?

I plan to put a scope of whatever I end up with.

Thanks for your thoughts,

I would prefer the MSR rifle to the 1903 Target Rifle for bench shooting. See post #3 in your "Anschutz 1903 MSR vs Target 1903" thread https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...1#post11487899
