As stated on Gunbroker, 1.5" or less with most ammo. But sometimes you can get a sub-inch 3-shot group If you real careful. Great hunting accuracy.

Here's a picture of the last time I shot the 6.5x55. This was a hair over 1.25", center to center. Shot on January 8, 2013. The outlying shot was the third shot of the string. Shot with windy gusts 5-10 MPH at 100 yards.

I have a .243 Model 7 , it is a Deer killing machine, fills my freezer annually. My last three shot group at 100 yards looked like a snowman. Of course I’m real picky about my reloads.

Thanks for the support jrw136, I just had a guy ask about the target for the Mauser, here was my response: "It was typical of the groups I shot that day. I had just put that scope on the rifle and that was the last group I shot after getting it "zeroed." Because of the windy conditions, I didn't feel that I would do much better. On a calm day I would have gone for one more scope adjustment to bring the group closer to target zero. I kept the target to reference for the next time out, not because it was anything spectacular. My marksmanship would be questioned by the deer I once took seven shots at, and missed all seven, but not by the ruffed grouse who's head I knocked off at 75 yards with a 30-06 some years ago. As they say, for me marksmanship is a hit or miss kinda thing."
