I am very happy with mine, havent used m118lr but shoot 168 amax. At 100yds anywhere from .75 to 1.125 at 400yds can keep most groups under 6 inches. Keep in mind I am not a top knotch shooter so a better driver would do better. I never seem to get a 10 round group downrange without a flyer or two but thats half the fun. Shooting groups is alright but dont get caught up in it, I enjoy placing targets out at various ranges and turning the turrets. To me, hitting a 6x12 steel target is a bullseye.Just remember to have fun!!!
I have only shot one box of M118LR and I was getting ~ 1 moa at 100 yards. I have had better accuracy with factory Hornady 168gr BTHPs, HSM 168gr BTHPs, and Federal GMM 168gr. All of those are sub moa, usually ~ 3/4 MOA and sometimes 1/2 MOA at 100 yards. This is with my all factory POF 308 with a 20" barrel.
yes I was just looking at some of the ballistics tests on their site....the 14" 308 had the best groups of the 308's they tested. It was sub half MOA. Other barrel lengths were around 3/4 MOA. Nice guns.
