Accurize a New Rifle
I have a NIB Winchester M70 Featherweight (from the 80s) that I plan to put into service. What "out of the box" things should I do to make it as accurate as possible? I know I can "glass bed it" or "pillar bed it". I have a good local gunsmith who has done work for me in the past. I plan to take it to him, but wanted to get some feedback from you guys on what I should instruct him to do (if anything). I also will have him put the scope on. NOTE: I am not looking for somekind of "benchrest" performance, just good, consistent, reliable accuracy for general deer hunting. I rarely shoot a deer over 100 yards, but occassionly up to 200 or so. THANKS!
