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!

    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.

    would this action benefit from being "blueprinted" ?

    possibly, but only at "re barrel" time.

    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.

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