Mossberg Precision Rifle
• $1,407 • 6.5 Creedmoor • 10 lb. 2 oz. • 24-in. barrel
The true measure of a precision rifle is accuracy, and based on this standard, the new Mossberg Precision Rifle had a hard time distinguishing itself in a highly competitive field. It is a legitimately sub-moa rifle, but its average 5-shot group size of .912 inch put it a step behind most of the competition. The adjustable Luth buttstock, integral Picatinny rail, and threaded barrel are all good features, but the magazine wiggled like a loose tooth in the receiver, and the bolt had an excessive amount of slop and play when we were running the gun. For the price, we expected a bit more polish and, well, precision.
