Remy 700 Improvements

I'd like to hear some recommendations/suggestions from others.

Situation:
New Remington 700 SFII 300RUM (Factory Set-Up).
Ken Ferrel 20moa base and Rings
Sightron SIII SS 6-24x50 LRMOA

Question:
Should anything be done to this rifle in order to improve its accuracy to the fullest potential? If so, what would be your recommendation(s).

I'm already looking to add a Jewell Trigger and Muzzle Brake (exact brand undecided).

Thanks for the help!

Re: Remy 700 Improvements

The jewel trigger and muzzle break would be a good idea. Apart from that maybe skim bed it then shoot it and see. I take it that it is a sendero, if so they have a good reputation for being accurate, you probably won't need to do much else.

Re: Remy 700 Improvements

would this action benefit from being "blueprinted" ?

Re: Remy 700 Improvements

I am assuming this would be the same for changing to a bigger recoil lug?

yes, although I've never seen a need or benefit from an oversized lug. The factory unit can be trued easily enuf and works fine.

Re: Remy 700 Improvements

Bed and brake along with the trigger should be helpful, good handloads and some rangetime...
