Also, when I say that Model 88s were not accurate, I don’t mean that every single 88 to leave New Haven was a dog. Some, undoubtedly, may have shot well. I base my statement on my own shooting, and that of others who have had considerable experience with the breed. In this case, it was John Wootters. Wootters’ favorite 88, a .308 he called “Jumper,” would group about 1 1/2 inches, which is plenty good for big-game hunting, but nothing exceptional.
