Which would you do first?

HI fellow shooters, I have a question regarding upgrades. Currently have an out of the box savage 12 fv in 22-250 with accu-trigger. It will consistently group 3/4 inches at 100yds 5 shots. Often enough to know it is possible when I do everything perfect ,I will get that ragged one hole group. However when shooting on the range I fined myself wondering if a better trigger or a better fitting stock would make those occasional one ragged hole groups happen the majority of the time instead of 1 out of 5 times. My question is what to do first a trigger or a stock?

Stock up grade first IMHO. My lfv stock is very flexible allowing me to shift and rock off target easily and it will cause poor action/stock fit. The action/stock fit and the unequal pressures exerted between the stock and action will mess with the barrel harmonics.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

Stock and good bedding. and while you are at it a decent trued lug. Nothing wrong with the accu trigger.
