Need Advice

I want to get some work done to my hunting rifle but i'm not sure what. My goal is to build a rifle that is competent to 800-1000 yds. for deer sized game. Here is my Current set up

Remington SPS Stainless
300 WSM
Stock Barrel
Hart Muzzle Brake
Bell and Carlson Stock
Trigger set to 2.5 lbs
Bushnell Elite Tactical 4.5-30X50

I do reload and am still working on a load. I have two loads that shoot MOA. One is with a 190 gr. Berger and the other is a 165 NBT. The 190 is too long so i'm limited to a single shot when i use this load. Anyways here is what i have in mind to do but want to get the best bang for the buck

New Stock: looking at the McMillan A-3 Sporter or something similar. I really want a Sporter stock with vertical grip. I'm also looking at the Gray Bull Stock. If i go with the stock i will also get it bedded.

True/Blue print action. I'm a little confused with the difference between the two. So if i could get educated that would be great.

Any other ideas would be great..

Thanks

    Hey,

    If you still have the standard trigger in there you may want to replace it: https://timneytriggers.com/timneysto...uct_detail&p=9

    Also another option for buying stocks is from MCS: Manners Composite Stocks

    You my want to check these out.

    do not blue print the action. get the fattest barrel you can live with and will fit in your stock.
