Re: To build a real accurate Rifle where should a person start.

Here is a crude but effective representation of a barrel block. 6.5 "Mystic" Barrel Block F-Classer The barrel is mounted in a block and the action and the rest of the barrel are free floated. It cuts harmonics by reinforcing the barrel and making it effectivly shorter. This makes the lever/barrel shorter and effectively stiffer.

Hollands V-Block was V shaped aluminum block under the barrel that screwed into a sleeve mounted to the barrel with a forward nut threaded onto the barrel. Another cleaner but somewhat less effective is to mount the barrel directly onto a V shaped or epoxy bedded bottom block with 4 1/4-28 screws in a straight section of barrel. The action is then floated in each version.

Start with a good gunsmith. Doesn't matter what components are chosen if the guy doesn't pay attention to detail or know what he's doing. There's a reason why some "budget" rifles shoot so well and some high end might be slightly disappointing.

Ever heard "Ya' can't make silk purse from sows ear"? Components do matter! Buy a crap barrel, and I don't care if you've got Gordy Gritters workin' on it,,,, it'll still be crap! Takes both quality components and quality workmanship. There is no single component to accuracy, it's always a combination of things.

1+++++++

A truly great rifle requires the best of all parts,combined with the best workmanship,
and the skill to chose the right procedures for the action and use.

As someone said, the best parts don't automatically make an accurate rifle, It requires skill
to use them to there best advantage.

I for one, think that It first starts with a quality barrel. Then all other things follow.
