Remington said they redid the crown on the muzzle, and something else in the chamber, and then sent the gun back to Paduccah. The guy said it shot .83 inch at 100 yrds with Remington 168gr match ammo. 

Thats about half the group size we were able to get before. But still no where close to what my 700BDL 270 does with Federal Premium 130gr Nosler BT's. 

I figure if I still have issues I will just sell it and get something else. But it may shoot better than that with a different ammo. Figures Remington would shoot their ammo in it.

.83 inch with a factory rifle is pretty darn good.

Yeah a better trigger, matched ammo, and a bedding job might just pull that in to .5 MOA

I have one 700 trigger that is tuned quite nicely without replacing. I guess I need a trigger scale

It does need a trigger, the one that it has, even when adjusted as light as I can get it, still doesn't match my old 700 one I adjusted. 

I got the Talley rings in, scope is here, just waiting on the gun to see what happens. Man I bet it will weigh a ton........ 

But if it shoots good, then I guess it will be ok. I know it will weigh more with the At One stock over the cheapie hogue. I really wish someone made a good hunting one that was light, and the barrel channel fit.

Manners, Mcmillan, AG composites, or Christensen Arms, all make light carbon fiber stocks.  I am sure there are others as well.  Rem 700 has a tremendous amount of after market stocks. 

This Christensen arms stock is only $350.  https://christensenarms.com/product/carbon-fiber-composite-sporter-stock/

Boyds say the AT One weighs "about" 3 pounds. 

I know the gun was noticably heavier with it. 

I got a service ticket email from remington yesterday, so I guess that means they shipped my gun

Brother, your just over the double oak mountain from me if you have trouble with that 700 again I’ve got the gunsmith for you and he’d have it turned around in less than a month. A2 Precision!

How about 10 3 shot groups at the same aiming point. When did 5 shot groups go out of fashion?

.83 ain’t bad for a hunting rifle.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

Well I got rifle back today. Not in original green box. Had some surface rust on barrel and a spot where I guess they had the barrel in a vise or something. WD40 seemed to get rid of it. They chamfered muzzle and lapped the barrel. 

Took it  in and had Mark's mount the scope and bore sight it, so it looks good now.... Just needs a better stock! 

I could see me selling the AT One and getting a full bed block Hogue too.  

And my target wasn't enclosed, so I guess I have to take their word for the accuracy claim. 

I did pick up some IMR 4064 over the weekend, so I may try to load some ammo for it some day soon.

Took gun out to hunting club to sight in and shoot.

Got on Target with Hornady 150 great American whitetail. Two 3 shot groups under 1 inch.

I put 5 federal gold match SMK 168's under an inch, and also 5 of 7 remaining handloads consisting of 168 nosler BT over 46.2 grain bc-l2 under 1 inch. One I pulled. 3 went through a hole for 2.

So not the best place to shoot, just some homemade table and a broken chair and my bag thing. Even with my heart beat making it dance around and the terrible trigger.

Much better shot performance than I saw prior to sending it back in. A better trigger and stock ought to help as would some load development.

So much happier with my gun now. Not like I let it cool down much either.

I was really pleased with the 150 gr performance. Those didn't group very well before. Over inch and a half. With the gunsmith shooting it in a much better situation than mine. 

I am going to tinker with the 168 grain Ballistic Tips and see what I can get to happen. I think that extra weigh would carry better for me if I had a longer shot. Which I do at my hunting club. 

This will about get me down to 1 rifle for the whole thing. This one is short enough it will work in a shooting house, or a tree stand, and yet still reach out and touch something if I need that.

I'd be happy with my stock old 700 trigger on my 270. So much better.
