Hey all, I have a .223 rem 700 ADL model rifle that I got pretty cheap a while back and am wondering what to do with it. After I got it I had some money left over so I got an HS Precision stock (didnt bed it or anything) and that along with my burris 4x14.5 scope are the only real modifications ive made to it. Ive hunted coyotes and prarie dogs along with done some target shooting with this rifle and the accuracy of it seems to be lacking, and not because of user error i think. Im wondering, where should I start to help get this rifle producing some better accuracy (the groups at 100 yards are sometime nearly 2 inches, and pretty darn sure its not user error) So, should I get the stock bedded (dont think thats too hard), or get the action trued or focus my effort as of yet on reloading (ive got an old press but havnt messed with it for LONG time). Any other options/suggestions would be appreciated. Also, i dont know if i'm lacking in head space or something becaue on nearly ALL factory ammo I buy the bolt is sometime hard to close and it kinda shears off a bit of case at the bottom (perhaps this is a cause of the poor accuracy). So any imput would be appreciated as to where I could start my improvemt for this rifle, while keeping in mind that i dont have a whole heck of a lot of money as of yet and will have to take this in steps. So i guess whereever I could focus my efforts to get the most accuracy out of this rifle would be great. I'd sure like it to shoot down in the 1 nch groups if not less at 100 yds.
