Enhancing accuracy?

Could you give me your opinions as too what NEEDS too be done on a Rem 700 action too get the best accuracy from it?

What does blue-printing the action consist of?
What brand of barrels do you like?
Who are some of the smiths you can recommend for longrange work?

I have a 7mmstw sendero and a 300 rum w/laminated stock too work with,which one do you think would make the best 1000yd gun, used mainly for longrange hunting.

Thanks for all the help.

Re: Enhancing accuracy?

Adjust the trigger (or go aftermarket), bed the stocks and load them up. I've had several Rem 700's and everyone of them would shoot 1/2moa with good handloads.

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

Re: Enhancing accuracy?

From my experience, trigger job or trigger replacement, bedding of the action, develop a load, practice with the rifle; in that order.

I saw a great article a couple of years bacck about the most cost effective accurizing techniques, and this was the order set out by that author too.
