While I believe you can build just about any cartridge to be a decent shooter, there are certain cartridges that are more inherently accurate then others. The PPC is very popular with the benchrest crowd...gotta be a reason that they would pick a cartridge that isn't available most anywhere and components are pricey...if they could get by with a standard produced round.I do agree that accuracy main component is the gun. That is why a custom rifle costs so much, accuracy costs money. Handloading can help tighten up groups in a over the counter rifle, but even then they cant compete with a custom job.Given the same amount of money to build two exact rifles, one in .308 and the other as a 30/30 you are going to have two different class rifles accuracy wise.308 is a great round as is the time proven 30-06.
One cartridge is not more accurate than another.

That makes two of us then... on all of it. (true story)Since that rifle, I had owned 2 or 3(?) more 30/06's, but do not own any today. Anyway, like your ADL, mine was also very accurate. I actually posted a target on here recently that I still had from back then. Don't recall the size of the group, but it had One hole made with 4 shots at 200 yards. The 5th shot was just outside the one hole.The 308 MAY be more accurate. But for hunting, Why bother? LOLFrankp.s. Besides, it's a REMINGTON.. what else needs to be said? p.s.s You also must be OLD, like me LOL
I must be one of the lucky ones. I bought a used Remington 700 ADL in the mid '70's chambered for the 30/06.
