Default Is a Remington 40X as accurate as an Anschutz?

I am only asking because I thought about getting into competition and was wondering if they could compete against an Anschutz. I already have a Kimber Model 82G and I love it. I thought about trying to compete with my Kimber (very accurate) and upgrading later. If the Remington can hold its own against the Anschutz, I thought I might take the plunge while they are available. If they aren't going to be much of an improvement over my Kimber, I thought I would wait and just get an Anschutz later on.

IMO a high end Annie will outshoot the 40X.

More importantly, can you shoot to the potential accuracy of either of these rifles?
Cheers,
WMC.

in competition a 40x and anschutz will be modified. a 40x will have a jewell trigger and a custom barrel and stock. the anschutz will have the action threaded and cutom barrel. on the lists for most major competitions in benchrest 40x's are second only to turbos in wins and placements.

I agree if you're talking original barrels even with a new 40X, with the used rifles, you can't be sure what you're getting accuracy wise. You now the Anschutz will shoot when you open the box.

Super Duty has nailed it. Either rifle demands the skill of the shooter to be equal to the rifle. In the proper hands there is no reason to think the 40X is inferior to the Anschutz. Remove the wood stock and set the 40X in an Anschutz Robo-stock and it would be an interesting match indeed.
You can not buy skill. You will shoot to your level of skill regardless of the quality of the equipment.
If you love the Kimber 82, compete with that. You'll know when you've become better than the Kimber.

PS-If you are still thinking about a 40X you've probably missed your chance.

One additional point. Some club competitions such as I shoot require unmodified "as issued" military trainer . 22 caliber rifles. That said the 40X seems to be the predominant choice of my competitiors followed by the 52D. I have 2 Kimbers and can't beat 3 of these competitors. Skill level? I can and do beat them with Garand's. All off the bench. I have an order in for 2 40X's - hopefully I will win the lottery.

At best, the 40X stock represents state-of-the-art, ca. 1958.

I got a 40XB HB in the last CMP go-around, and it looks just like the rifles that used to run in the Remington center-fold ads in the American Rifleman. You old f!@#$ out there know who you are and what I'm talking about.

The last telemark or indoor gallery shoot I have seen didn't have too many 40X's

A 40-X is not even close to an Anschutz and a Winchester 52 isn't either. Time has passed them by.
