I am and have been a die hard black powder shooter/hunter with a .50 flintlock rifle. I am an avid black powder competitor in local and state level matches. But I had this itch for shooting to ranges longer then I cared to get into with black powder. I already owned this 1974 Remington 700 in .270 that I bought in the late 80's for elk hunting when I couldn't use a front stuffer. It has always been an MOA shooter but I knew it could be better. I started with stripping the stock of the factory varnish finish and did a boiled linseed oil/thinner finish and then floated the barrel. Since I am on a budget for this project I decided to try the Tasco Target/varmint 2.5-10 X 42 true mil dot scope. I added the BlackHawk cheek pad and bi-bod. I made a run to the range and instead of the very expensive ammo I used to use I thought I'd try the Fusion in 130 grain. I was very pleased with the bullet performance. I did get about .85 MOA but I still wasn't happy with the trigger. I researched and found Aquila Precision Firearms of La Porte, Texas who offers Remington 700 accurizing packages. He bedded and pillared the stock, replaced the stock trigger with a Timmney trigger and up graded the firing pin. I had him do a muzzle brake as I anticipate shooting this rifle a lot and didn't want to worry about recoil. When I got it back from the shop I took it to the range. It now shoots to about .75 MOA and what a difference! Now to build my load which means getting into cartridge reloading. And then a lot of practice.
