Yesterday I ordered my first custom Barrel. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] It will be a 27" Lilja Heavy Varmint Contour and be fitted to a Remington 700 action. I now need to find a stock and a gunsmith. But I have questions about both.
The gun will be mostly used for coyote hunting
, it's second use will be for shooting small groups ( Hopefully ) from a bench, out to 1,000 yards, maybe more. Can you suggest a good stock? One that is not flashy, fits well in a bench rest and not uncomfortable to hold?
Once I get the barrel and stock in hand, what specifically should I ask the gunsmith to do to it to make it as accurate as possible?
Just because I will never shoot it in competition, doesn't mean I don't want it to shoot as well as possible. What is the most accurate type of bedding? What should I ask be done to the bolt, the lugs or any part of the action, or chamber?
