Make sure the bore isn't over fouled.
After that I would probqbly start with tunning the trigger.
Then you might consider having the action bedded, but if you plan on getting the action blueprinted, you might want to have that done first.
You can also have the barrel recrowned.
IMO, hand loading is a must for precision shooting and you should use good quality dies. It really helps to have good measurement tools to ensure your cases and bullets are concentric. There's a lot of good reading ing the reloading forum and some good articles in the techincal article section.
Welcome to LRH and good shooting,
thank you for the welcome and yes my initial question was pretty broad based. My rifle probably shoots alot better than I can but I throughly clean it with butch's did a known proper 20 shot breack in clean....and shoot form a 3 min cold barrel.
Right know Im shooting simple factory remington ammo 180 grain Swift Scirocco Bonded. It shoots anywhere from 1" 3 shot's to 2" . I haven't put the stocky's thumbhole on yet but I will be.
I wanted to just do some basic accurizing to it. Maybe the recoil lug, truing the lugs....ect. Im sending the bolt out for cosmetic fluting and figure might as well get the lugs trues seeing how it was fairly inexpensive.
As far as hand loading I simply don't have the time literally. I would like to know though if there is an outfit where you can buy custom handloaded ammo. I understand that not all ammo will shoot the same but want some place to start.
