Re: Rem 700 Accuracy Problems

Thought I would give an update, I have found an error on my part of the rifle so I corrected that and tomorrow after church I'm off to the range to see if what I adjusted fixes my problem

Re: Rem 700 Accuracy Problems

Sorry I have been away for a while and thought I would give an update on my 700. First off thanks everyone for your replies.

I took a target and my gun to a gunsmith that specializes in long range rifles. When he first looked at the target he said trigger. He then took my stock off to look into it a little further. He said my action had a lot of "wobble" in it. So he is going to glass bed it and put a new trigger in it. He did tell me that he sees the trigger issue with a bunch of the newer Remington's.

It does kind of tick me off that I bought what I thought was pretty much top of the line rifle from Remington, but I still have to put money into it. Trust me I know in order to shoot long ranges you have to tweak rifles, but heck at 100 yards??

you have to be able to shoot good at 100 yards to shoot good at 1000

I love remingtons, but everyone i touch seems to need work before it will shoot well.
