Okay, some holiday donations are going to get my .284 Win kicked off a bit sooner than I thought it would. Just a brief re-cap:
What I have:
-Rem 700 barreled action in .22-250
-B&C Medalist Varmint/Tactical stock
What I need:
-New barrel in .284Win (undecided on twist...please opine. 1:8 maybe?)
-new barrel threaded for muzzle goodies, like a SF compensator.
-Barrel mated to action, trued, blueprinted
Hopefully I can start load development in February.
I want to use heavy-for caliber bullets: 160 to 180gr. I will likely stick with A-max and Berger target and VLD bullets. Is a standard chamber size adequate or is having a tighter "match" chamber a viable idea to squeeze more accuracy out of the rig?
I'd like to hear all the ideas or thing's y'all would do to squeeze more accuracy out of the gun (other than simple stuff like bedding the action, of course)
