I have a 700 LSS that I really like the fit and feel of. It's a 270 WSM, also something that I like. The problem is I cannot for the life of me get it to shoot consistently under 1". It has been pillar/epoxy bedded, free floated (also tried with shims under the barrel) and I have tried every conceivable load on earth. Tried Norma brass, all different distances from lands, different bullets, powders, primers, you name it. I can shoot other guns under 1" consistently, so I know it's not all my shooting. It seems to me that a good gun should shoot MOST loads around 1" or so, with a good load grouping closer to 1/2-3/4". I'm convinced that this rifle will not do that. So my question is, where would you go from here? I do have limited funds, but I'm tired of being frustrated time after time at the range. I am considering getting a new rifle or having this one rebarreled and squared up. Rebarreling will cost around $750 and the gun itself is probably worth $700. So are there any guns around that would perform really well for under $1500? Right now I'm leaning toward sending it in to Hart for a slightly heavier than factory 26" barrel. This gun is used for backpack hunting so I don't want to go too heavy.
