    Default building a one Hole Rifle

    I have a Remington model 700 BDL in 30-06 cal. This rifle has a sporter barrel H&S Precision Stock and a Timney Trigger. These upgrades made the rifle feel and handle better but did not improve down range score. I am looking to find out what improvements I can make to this rife to be able to shoot long range and one hole. What would be the best barrel and what kind of gunsmith work would be beneficial to accomplish this task. I have been shooting Sierra 168 match king HPBT. Any and all information would be appreciated. If some work can be done in stages and see the progress the sequence would be good. Thanks for any and all help

    What range are we talking? In the mean time here are a few things to get you started

    Rifle/Barrel
    ------------------
    Get it changed to a different caliber. 6mmBR is a good place to start
    True the action
    Print the action
    Lap the bolt face
    Lap the bolt rails
    Polish Trigger
    Change barrel to a 20"+ (Shilen, Douglas, Lija, Hart) (Not in any order) *Ensure proper crown*
    *Ensure proper twist rate*
    Ensure good barrel float
    --------------------

    Loads
    --------------------
    Turn neck to matching thickness
    Trim cases to matching lengths
    Use a good seating die (Forest Ultra, Redding Comp)
    Neck size cases after formed to rifle
    Weigh each projectile
    Weigh each case
    Weigh each charge
    Uniform primer pockets
    Debur primer pockets
    Find best OAL (Start .010" of lands)
    Use quality components

    Shooter
    -----------------------
    Practice shooting with no round
    Practice breathing control
    Learn proper rifle rests
    Learn proper shooting technique
    Shoot a lot
    Understand shooting conditions
    -----------------------

    This should be enough to get you started, after you get through this, post an update and I can go over some more stuff

    Is that ever going to be a sticky? I definitely think it's worth it.

    Nevermind ... I see that it is no

    I think they're going to sticky it, but they're waiting on me to finish it. It lacks one or two more good long posts to be finished. I believe that's what they're waiting on. I'll get to work on them in a minute so it's finished and they can sticky it if they want.

    It already is a sticky. Most have happened recently or I just don't pay that much attention to things anymore.
