Re: Accurization ?????

Absolutely do not hand lap the barrel unless you are willing to lose an inch or more. That is an art and even barrel makers have specialists to do that. They cut a reference mark on the end of the blank as to where to cut it off before crowning. Hand lapping slightly enlarges the bore at the muzzle end

    Thanks all. I was just wondering if it would worth the time and money. It is getting the stock and a trigger job thats a good start.

    Sir, do you have any recommended videos or threads related to the two above for a Rem 700 with synthetic stock?

    Last bedding job I did I bought a kit from Brownells. The instructions were very complete & easy to follow.

    Buano is correct, pick up the Acraglas gel kit (Brownells), the instructions are crazy easy to follow... i've also seen a few threads somewhere that overviewed the process.... I'll see if I can find them...

    My thoughts on the 700 trigger are simple to state: Throw it away & put in a good one. It's neither the most accurate trigger nor a reliable trigger/safety system (with seemingly random failures where guns go off without the trigger being pulled) so I go aftermarket. Some here argue the 700 trigger is reliable since most 700 rifles do not fail, but I have seen ones that did & no one has been able to show me how to tell when one will fail before the failure occurs.
