Hey everyone. I had a few questions about what you could do to make a rifle more accurate. the things i really know of are pillar bedding and glass bedding the stock ( im not sure what one is better). and there were a few other things. I really want to be able to do a lot of work at home because it would be enjoyable to me and i wont have to find a gunsmith because i live in NJ and you cant find any haha. So i was hopeing you could tell me what projects could be done to enhance my rifle preformace that i would be able to do myself and if some requires a little training i would like to know anyway bc i would like to be tought stuff. again i would like to do a lot on my own because it would be fun and feel good knowing i did the work on my rifle.... Thanks for your time!!

Bolt lug lapping is another common step. Beyond that, you start to get into things like blueprinting the action or truing the bolt, which require machine tools (lathe, milling machine). If the rifle has trouble with building fouling rapidly, you can try firelapping the barrel to smooth it out and remove constrictions. You can download a PDF file on one method of hand crowning from my file repository, here.
