If you are consistently shooting in the .3 that rifle ain't broke!! You could spend a butt load of money trying to drop from the .3s to the .2s or .1s and never get it done. True quarter moa or less rifles are something special, despite a smiths best efforts they don't all turn out quite that good. It's your money and you're free to spend it as you wish, but starting in the .3s doesn't leave you a whole lot of room for improvement.



Doesn't sound like you have a problem. Leave that rifle alone and build a longe range rifle
from scratch if you have the itch.
