Does anybody have any ideal how well these shoot with factory ammo. I'm going to try 130gr. federal soft points, 130gr. federal ballistic tips, 130gr. winchester ballistic tips. I was just wondering what kind of accuracy to expect.

depends on your rifle and how consistant the rounds got loaded and also how consistant you can shoot.

First off there is a huge difference in the accuracy of a Cooper rifle or a Bullberry Barrel or a GAPrecision custom rifle etc and whay you get off the shelf. Some things can aid in making your rifle more accurate - a good trigger job, having the action bedded and the barrel free floated. having the action trued. But lets say you have a good one you should be able to expect minute of angle of better that is 1 inch at 100 and 2 inches at 200 and 3 inches at 300. Say  you have an average rivle thats about a 2moa gun or 2 inches at 100 and 4 inches at 200 and 6 inches at 300.  If it wont do that its time to work it over or trade it off.
I fear that you may be starting with a caliber which has too much recoil to be enjoyable and too costly of ammo to be shot often unless you reload.

I just thought I would try something a little different for a change. This gun is mainly going to be my rainy day gun. It's a remington xcr with a stainless fluted barrel and it has got a bushnell elite 4200 in Talley rings sitting on top. The price of ammo has definetly got an ouch factor built in.

I finally got it to the smith today to get the trigger adjusted and he said they would do alot better if I reloaded. I know every rifle is different it's just driving me crazy not know how she's gonna shoot. I didnt even want to try it till I got the lawyer proofing out of the trigger.

All I ever hunt is deer so I figured this should make a good rain gun with plenty of knock down and an elite to see through. As long as it stays under two moa it will be fine were I hunt a hundred yard is a long shot. Two moa should not be a problem with factor ammo should it.

Get Ye to the Range .........& Enjoy ..remember , follow a barrel break in procedure and give it a few rounds to settle in ( might need to put 50-100 through it to see what the rifle can really do )
 
Sounds like a really nice rainy day ( or sunny) rig..Big%20Grin

My 270wsm shot factory ammo good.  Outta my gun most factory ammo was between 1 - 1 1/2".  I got into handloading and that made a big difference.  Groups now are well under 1".

Mine will shoot the 150 gr. Winchester power points to about 3/8" and everything else to 1-1 1/2". It's very picky for supreme accuracy. Every rifle is different, and you just have to see what yours likes.
