I don't want to be stuck on trying to match the load and accuracy my bolt shoots, but just thought it would be nice
In MY experience, every 1/7 barrel I have had has given between acceptable (2-3 MOA) and fantastic (1.5 or less MOA) accuracy from 16" or less barrels out to 100 yards. A lot of this, of course, depends on individual shooter and optic being used, as well as individual barrels. In most cases, you won't be sure of what YOUR barrel will do until you go out and try it.
