I had a very accurate factory rifle (rem. 700 LA) in .270win. After years of shooting it had to be rebarrled. I decided to go the hole 9 yards and build a precision rifle. Following is a list of components I used for a rebuild this hunting rifle into a precision .308win rifle. -Mike Rock 5R rifling double stress relieved stainless .30 barrel blank with a 11.2" twist. -McMillan A5 stock -H-S Precision mag kit -Badger ordance recoil lug -Badger ordance muzzle break -Custom extended bolt handle I then had the lugs laped, the trigger done and the hole thing put together by a local guy. My problem is the rifle shoots no better than it did before, in fact it shoots worse! I feel lucky when I buy a factor rifle and it shoots 5/8" @ 100m, I feel taken when I get $3000 into a rifle that shoots 1-1 ¼” groups @ 100m. I have been handloading for years, Ammo is not the problem. My question is what groups can or should I expect form this rifle at 100-600m? I believe 1/4" 100m to 3 or 4" at 600m. My gunsmith says I am asking to much, what do you guys think?
