I was amazed at the accuracy of my 514, after mounting a 4x scope on it. It needed a side mount, due to the vertical bolt slot. I plinked and shot considerable small game with it, but don't recall grouping ability, since I never shot from a bench 'til later in life.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
