Rebarreling an old Savage is it worth it?
I have a 20 year old Savage 110 in left handed. It is currently in 270 but has never shot well, I did a trigger job, had the stock glass bedded and barrel freefloated and fire lapped the barrel, it still won't group under 2-21/2 MOA. It was my first deer rifle I got when I was about twelve years old (worked for it and paid for it myself) but I haven't hunted with it since I got out of high school, because I have never been happy with the accuracy. I keep hearing about the accuracy of the new Savages and Savage claims it is mainly in the barrels they are using now. Anyways I was thinking of rebarrelling it in 22-250 for a coyote gun, but was wondering if anybody had tried this with an inaccurate older Savage and what their results were. If it still won't shoot I don't want to waste the money on it, but if it would shoot a long action 22-250 would give a guy a lot of room for long heavy bullets in the magazine.
