+1 on the trigger
Personally if you where to do that the first thing I would do is to throw the stock away and get a boyd's thumbhole, pillar bedded at the very least. Makes a whole different rifle out of it.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
