I purchased a 700 VTR about a month ago, to used as coyote/pig gun and targets for fun. I wasn't real impressed with how it shot 100 gr federal blue box, which is all gun shop had on hand when I bought it. I have since gathered components to work up some hand loads, and switched scopes to a nice Conquest 4.5-14X50. I'm ready to sight in and work up a load, but am know thinking of replacing stock with a B&C medalist first. On a different note, this gun seems to have a ton of freebore. Like .33". Anywhere close to lands not possible. This concerns me, but I was assured by gun shop where I purchased these guns will shoot well. Long post I know, here are my questions for those with more experience than me: 1. B&C medalist good idea? 2. Free-bore concerns? Possibly having to have barrel set back and re-chambered? 3. Should I be looking to sell gun and pick up something else or just start into this one and do whatever it takes to make it shoot?
