Re: Problem 700 SPS
working the action over is not going to make a bad chamber in a turd barrel shoot !
I have Rem 700's that were 300 Rums to start with, back in 2002 I had my smith give one the works to accurize it and rebarrel to 300 Tomahawk with a #7 Hart barrel, It is extremely accurate but I have to say it's the Hart barrel !!!!!
my 338 Edge got an Obermeyer bbl with zero action accurizing and shoots 300 gr Accubonds as good as the 300 Tomahawk with target bullets...
my other Rems got Bartlein, Brux and Rock Creek bbls with no action accurizing of any kind....all shoot as good and maybe a bit better than the accurized one ! most of the time accurizing is not needed, a high quality barrel and a new chamber by a competent gunsmith will make a fine shooting Rem 700
BTW ... have a smith install a Sako Extractor (properly) and your brass shavings and brass damage will vanish... a new barrel and chamber will have you shooting some nice groups
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
