In my limited experience, there is no more accurate rifle that the SAKO M579 SM. Not the Rem. M-24, nor any other models that I have shot at 100-500 meters. Optics being a factor for precise repeat shooting at longer distances. At 100-200M, the Sako .17 rem matches a tight/same hole pattern, but this .308 is head shaking accurate for anyone. My 2 cents.
