I know you don't want to hear this. The Vortek UL I had shot better than the two Optimas and Accura V2 I had. You should have bought it when I offered it to you. It shot BH 209 perfect with no mods too.

However, none of them can out shoot my Omega.

i think it would be impossible to out shoot my current set up LOL. Heck my $180 Wolf puts 3 aerolites into a 1/4" group @ 100.

Maybe, but I did say it out shot the CVA's I had.

So, you can say I must be a lousy shot, but keep in mind I was the one shooting the Vortek too.

FG, when you are shooting off a fancy rest that all you do is pull trigger and some do that for you it's really not shooting, it's more machine test firing. I would venture to say if I can shoot 1" groups off a rolled up piece of carpet then I bet most all in-lines will do what your CVA's can do. I'd be willing to take that bet. I can get bullets that touch holes without a fancy rest so lets not brag those CVA's up too much here.

I don't shoot off a bench at all. I always shoot the way I hunt. Off my knee.

Yeah, FG i'm shaky. I just time my shakes when they pass over the target.

Huntingman, my brother in law thought the same thing and even said, when i put 3 shots into the same hole, you have to go onto the forums and tell them that i am a better shot than you!!!! Well he took his 3 shots and after he had a nice 8" string and i had a 5 shot group that measured 1 1/4" with 4 shots measuring 7/8" he learned pretty well its not just the fancy rest that helps me with my shooting.

You still need to know how to breath and squeeze the trigger, but it does help hold the sights steady.

oh hes got the breathing and squeezing down right, i watched closely on that, but what he did was squeeze the wrist of the stock and pull down hard on it, putting unnatural pressure throughout the rifle. Theres an interesting way i learned how to shoot off this rest but its kind of hard to explain in text.

FG, we'll just disagree with this one. I know what Muley is saying about all that goes into proper shooting and all, I'm just saying that most barrels are way more accurate than the person behind them. The fancy rest makes most people way better down range than hunters would care about. To most 1" at 100 yds would be great. Put that rifle in a hold down rest with aux trigger firing system and suddenly the rifle is shooting 1/2" groups.
