If you want a tack driver and plan on the expense of a new barrel, consider a better stock as well and find the money to do it (if possible).
HS Precision, McMillan, several others will work.
LOTS of great bbls available too.
A buddy of mine had a 270 built with a HSPrecision stock and a 3 groove Lilja tube. At the range it placed factory Hornady SST 140 grains in the same hole. This was right after about 20 rounds to break-in. And none of those made much of a spread either. They were random rounds, some factory Remmy, some were loads I made with minimum charges of VV powder like 165 since it burns so clean.
