    Don't know the answer to your question, but I bought one used from a store and @ 25 yds it wouldn't hold 6", I called Remington and they said send it back and since it was used the warranty was no good, they even sent me an empty box to ship it to them. I shipped it to them via UPS for $9.60 and 2 weeks later they shipped it back with no charge. They said they reamed the muzzle and lapped the bore, the target shows 3 holes at 100 yds, I will shoot it myself in about 2 weeks. Very happy with Remington service.

    The run-of-mine 7400 will rarely get one hole groups in any caliber. I would say the average is about 2-3 inches at 100 yds (2-3 MOA if you prefer), considered adequate for the purpose of the rifle, which is moderate range woods hunting. As Remington seems to have shown, and in my limited experience, the rifle can be tuned to give better groups, but it simply was not made as a super accurate, long range rifle.

    I do not currently own either gun, but I have never cared for the Ruger Mini 14. I think the 7400 should be better based on caliber alone unless the name of the game is cheap surplus ammo or a big magazine. Tuning mainly involves playing with tension on the barrel takedown nut and freeing up the action bars and foreend anywhere they contact the barrel. That gun (and its pump companion the 7600) work best when the barrel is free floated as much as possible.
