i have a 300 win mag 700bdl, have had it 20 years, grew up on it to be honest, she ain't grouping like she used to, looking to build a tactical style 300 win, want to go with a 22" heavy/varmit style barrel. (shilen, lilja, or hart) and maybe a full pillard hogue or hs stock, plan on using the factory trigger, i want the action tued, and any other accuracy tweek that can be done, i am not a reloader, so will be limited to factory ammo, is 22"s to short?, gun will still be used for some whitetail hunting out of shooting houses, probably going to stay with 3.5 x 10x50 leupold, or may possible try a triicon 2.5x10x56mm accupoint scope, vast majority of ammo will be 180 gr loads, open to any opinions or suggestions, thanks

A couple of things you may want to do to see if you can improve the accuracy of your existing rifle:

Have you given it a really good, super-duper cleaning anytime lately? I mean really scour out the chamber and barrel, get rid of all the copper fouling and such?

Have you checked the muzzle really close to make sure you don't have a minor bit of damage at the crown? Just one little tiny nick or ding at the end of the muzzle can affect accuracy a lot.

:)

Oh, a plus one on the longer barrel. Too short of a barrel and a lot of that potential magnum power just ends up as flash and noise.
