It should be better than a factory rifle because of the truing,lapping, trigger and a custom barrel
with a good chamber and stock.
Plus a proper bedding and a good head space, should all add up to a good rifle and a lot more
experance and knowledge of what it takes to make an accurate rifle.
Most Gunsmiths started just trying to accurize factory rifles and learned the in's and out's
of many different rifles before starting to build rifles from scratch.
