-Action was trued and the lugs lapped
-Competition recoil lug
-Custom firing pin and bolt shroud
-Side gill Brake
so everything is done just a factory barrel. I am a good loader and am gonna shoot some 190 HVLD's out of it. Should I chase the "1" hole or be satisfied with something else til it gets a custom barrel??? I haven't played with a factory gun trying to really make it shoot in a while.
With certain loads my Sendero SF 7mm STW will shoot 1 ragged hole groups, and it's all factory. Had her for 11 years now (since new). Most accurate factory gun I've ever owned, next to a custom .308 Win that would literally stack 3 in 1 single hole. My 2nd most accurate factory gun is my Remington 700 5R MilSpec .308 Win. with a 24" barrel. She'll stack 'em in there, too.
I would be very happy with cloverleaf groups out of ANY factory rifle. But there's no reason why you can't atleast TRY to squeeze some more accuracy out of it... If it does, good for you, if it doesn't, you still won't be disappointed because you'll be shooting 1/4-1/2 MOA groups out of a factory rifle.
