I recently have started a new project rifle and need some help! I bought a stevens 200 in .223 and I am looking for a extremely accurate rifle out to 400 yards. I started by placing a nikon 6-18X on top using burris zee rings. Step two involved a complete trigger overhaul resulting in a sub two pound, very crisp trigger. Third came the stock, I sanded out the channel and the outside and painted it camo (first time came out awesome). I am now stuck with my lack of knowledge and ability, I am getting 1.5-2" groups with factory loads and I really am hoping for better. My funds are limited and I really want to make the best improvements I can. And if I rebarrel I was wondering the best bang for my buck, or should I be more worried about other areas of the gun first. Please I need help, i think i need to pointed in the right direction. thank you in advance everyone here has always been so helpful, it means alot to me. p.s. I live in michigan and if there is a great place to go for help,please let me know!!!
