I'm considering buying a SIG 751 SAPR LB (18" barrel) in .308, what kind of accuracy can I expect with match ammo?

I haven't been able to find any reviews or tests online with range reports...

Thanks!

A lot of the 751 guns in the US are SB models, so I doubt many folks have shot them with accuracy in mind. Barrel length doesn't really have much to do with accuracy though, so there's no reason SB results shouldn't be taken seriously. The 550 series is known for accuracy, and the SAPR shouldn't be any different. You could be the first thorough tester.

I managed to find a review article in a German magazine called Visier (Jan/2015). It has a 100meter range report.

The 'SK 100' column has the group sizes (SK = Streukreis which means group sizes). One result clearly sub-MOA (17mm) and 3 others are also sub-MOA but considering only 4 out of 5 shots (the group size in brackets).

5189


You can find the complete article at the website of a large German gunshop: http://www.frankonia.de/images/multimedia/pdf/181589.pdf

You can also see the price in 2015 was 3200 Euros but now it is 6400 Euros... it nearly doubled in price in 5 years unfortunately... must be the only production rifle whose price is increasing over time :-(

I know this forum is more focused on the .223, so in case you're interested, here are a couple of German reviews with range reports for the 55X series that I found during my searches. This is the review of the 550 using the long barrel: http://www.sg550.de/SIGSauer_550er_Selbstlader.pdf

And another test of the 550 series with several barrel lengths: https://www.dar-germany.com/fileadmin/dar_website/presse/2014-01_Caliber.pdf

I never understood the point of 7.62NATO out of anything shorter than an 18.5" barrel. Might as well shoot 7.62x39 because your only 25 grains and 150FPS apart with a 16" 7.62NATO rifle.
