Custom barrels and factory ammo
A couple of guys I hunt with will each be getting a Stevens in 308 from the jolly fella in red this year. They both plan on gradually turning them into semi customs, starting with triggers then stocks and eventually barrels.
Originally I thought it was a good plan, since I talked them into it. However I'm having second thoughts on the barrel.
These gents don't reload and despite my best efforts I doubt they ever will. This means they will be shooting factory stuff, and probably more Remmington/Federal/Winchester than the Black Hills stuff.
So what I'm wondering is IF these factory rifles will shoot the factory loads into say .75 to 1 moa will rebarreling with a custom improve the groups a noticable amount given its still factory ammo?
Thanks in advance
