Accuracy secret: Built-in bedding blocks in the Winchester (left) and Remington (center). The Ruger (right) lacked one.
PMC's 55-grain HPBT shot well across the board, notching best of test 0.38-inch groups in the Winchester, 0.47-inch groups in the Remington 700 (above), 0.42-inch groups in the Ruger, and 0.64-inch groups in the Tikka.
