I'm thinking about a rem 700 aac sd and an accuracy international stock. Is there anything else that needs to be done besides just putting it in the chassis? Like bedding and all that jazz? Or is that just with regular style stocks? I'm JUST starting to look into this and am wondering how complicated it is.

There is more to it. Some like to bed the recoil lug. It's a Remington, which isn't a good choice but is cheap, so you'll need to get the trigger fixed if the recall hasn't been done, or replace it.

What is your budget?

As stated bedding is an important factor to accuracy as are the components, barrel, action, trigger, and stock.

You can expect to spend as much on glass as on the rifle if not more so.

Then there is learning how to shoot, I know that may sound simplistic but when you combine NPA, breathing, how to hold the rifle when prone without stressing the stock, loading the bipod, it's a lot more than just pressing the trigger.

With a chassis I'll shoot it before bedding to decide if I want to, if it shoots good I'd leave it alone.

Freedom, hardware is just one element of precision shooting. Above all
else, if you have limited experience the best equipment in the world won't
make you proficient. If you are willing to enter the sport and invest in good
hardware, then take a course in precision shooting to identify habits or
faults that may ruin your shot and that will give you a basic skill set you can
build on.

Also, by taking a course that provides a quality firearm as part of the training
program, you can begin to learn what works for you before you buy your
first precision rifle.

I agree with Sagillman, but I've found that bedding the tang usually helps with the occasional flyers.

Range time (practice) is the biggest factor.

Call Mile High but not about a chassis, just get an AT.
