Re: Browning A-Bolt 7wsm Options?
As many of you know there are many different hunting situations one could encounter in TX. Very long scendaro shots, open plains, and short 100s in the woods.
I think that the inaccuracy was due to first gen wsm's the rifle has a 9 twist and I notice they are producing 9.5 now.
Don't know how much diff this makes, but I expected a little better out the factor rig. Using a Burris FFII 4x14x44 and did use different scope to test optics(optics are true). The groups were at best 5"; after 150 rounds and re lapping the crown and nice load I have pulled them down to 1 Moa with some less. I am ok with that, not to knock the cal- it is probably the rifle. Have heard sim cases with same rifle. Very finaky. I enjoy target shooting and have a steady hand. 2 lb trigger spring to this rifle, very sweet feel, with new stock and custom barrel this will very likely be my beginner LRH rifle. Could probably perform as is but I want good quality which factory barrel may not be sufficient.
Jon A has a very nice rig. It's a prime example for what I am looking for.
Here is what current plans are: new stock-richards micro tact t-hole semifancy wal with glass bedding lug and action and f-flting barrel. I will later purchase a new barrel and have installed. This where my knowledge will fail me. What else will have to be done to the barrel/action? I read about "blue printing" and "have trued" but not sure what these entail?
