    Can anyone tell me a little about this gun at 100 yds? I’ve been trying to find the best hand load but so far she only likes 110 gn Speer and IMR 4064 powder with a 54.5 gn load. Only then can I get sub MOA groups....

    Sorry, I have no first hand experience with the 06 patriot.

    However, any other 30-06 that I have ever owned, has never been sub-moa.

    Sorry I can't be much help either. I bought my 30-06 Patriot as a truck gun with iron sights for the occasional hog or other varmint. I've sighted it in at 50, but not beyond.

    Got one of the laminate marinecote versions in the same caliber. So far, it likes the 150 and 165 Nosler BT.

    I have a 4x4 with the laminate stock in 30-06. It does very well with 150 Sierra Gameking and H4350 powder.
    Looks like you’re doing pretty well.

    Just added a brand new trijicon 4-16x50 accupower to the arsenal! Talk about dead-on accuracy! This thing helped me achieve sub-MOA from out of the box ammo at 100 yds!

    This is a one inch bullseye at 100 yds with the trijicon. 8 rounds!

    Great consistency in your set up and shooting. I still shoot some 3 or 5 shot groups. Each year I find myself shooting more groups with 10 or more shots per bull. I do this mainly at my ranges 200 yard range. Seems like the consistency gives me the assurance that all is well. I will add that if there is a weakness it will be seen with large shot groups. I shoot all hunting class guns and am not talking high quality target set ups. I enjoy your Patriot .30-06 updates.
