This sound horribly familiar.
I had just "The best gunsmith in Australia" build me a fully trued Remington 700 in .338 Edge with a 30" Lilja barrel....etc. etc. blah, blah.
It was the worst rifle I have ever fired. Well to be truthfull tried to fire as it would not even fire!
Don't trust that smith! I found my chamber 0.100" too deep, and the bedding all stuffed up. It was enough to drive me to drink. After he recut the chamber I still had to fix up the bedding myself and play with the action hold down screw torque and do a few other things, before that rifle would shoot how a custom rifle
I put over 150 shots down that tube before it was right. Thats A$6 per shot.
Once again..........Don't trust that smith!
