I thought that I remember a thread discussing how much different aspects of load and rifle action tuning related to accuracy but I must be using the wrong search parameters.
Now I see many long range super accurate rifles on this sight and I'm sure that their accuracy is not by chance.
Let's say I bought a Remington or a Savage factory rifle and wanted above average accuracy for long range hunting. I could easily go out and buy a premium barrel by " insert name here", add a great trigger " your favorite trigger here".
Now I have a factory action, a great barrel and a great trigger.
How close am I?
I can play with loads; I can turn case necks; I can sort bullet and trim meplats.
If I have an unlimited budget, then I can do everything imaginable, but how about a guy on a budget?
If there are 25 or 50 things on the accuracy list, there are probably between 2 and 10 that account for 90% of all the improvement that I will get.
So does truing the action come before buying the premium barrel and saves about $500, or does the barrel come first and not true the action saving $ xx?
Any thoughts as to the list, and the order that they should be done assuming there is not an unlimited budget....or all of the above if there is no limit?
