Rem 700... To true and rebarrel or just to true?
Hey guys i have a quick question that my google fu was not able to hack.
I currently own two Rem 700s. One is a earlier Police in .223 (old but hardly worn) and the second one is a old AND worn VLS in .308. Both finished at 26"
Now, i need to know if truing the guns and keeping their original barrels in, is a sound idea or if I should go all in and rebarrel both guns with match barrels... I believe both barrels have a lot of life left in them (specially the .223 police) so i guess the question is:
Do truing the gun makes it more accurate or is it the combination of truing and barrel fitting a match blank that makes the gun fire accurately? (assuming good ammo and shooter work is present of course)
Im assuming that truing and a new barrel will make a gun accurate all other factors ironed right, but can i get every last one drop of precision from the gun without having to rebarrel? Just by truing?
I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of usage of the word "truing" and its derivatives hejehe
