I've owned this rifle chambered in 300win for just under 2years, and I've never been happy with the grouping. At 100yrds it tends to roll three shots into a 1.7" group.
Glass is good. Using a Leupold VX3 on a DNZ scope mount. Ammo is is good too. Some personal loads I worked up for this rifle, and I've tried store bought match grade as well.
It is still wearing the factory Griptonite stock, and I'm thinking of starting there and possibly changing the stock, but I'm not finding many options outside of Boyds and B&C. Ive been contemplating just pillar and glass bedding the factory stock, rather then drop $300 on a Bell and Carlson. Any thoughts?
I really enjoy this rifle, and someday I'd like to feel comfortable with taking it in the field hunting, just wish it grouped better on paper.

I'd pillar bed before buying the B&C cause I don't think there's much difference unless you get the B&C with the aluminum action block.
Plus it might be the barrel just won't shrink your groups.

I believe that rifle is just a rebranded Howa, should be plenty of options for a long action Howa.
