Truing up the action should run no more than $125.00. Most of the popular "Tactical" companies charge more, I would use a good benchrest gunsmith, they are usually quite a bit cheaper. Speedy Gonzalez is the absolute best in the buiseness, His spokesperson is the incomparable Tony Boyer, Speedy has built more National Championship Guns than anybody, He charges $115.00 to blueprint the action. The bedding cost really depens on what you want done, If I remember correctly you have a 700 PSS right? If so you are probably wanting to skim bed over the aluminum bedding block, this should be between $75.00 and $125.00 max. You should request marine tex as the bedding compound. As far as fire lapping, I have never been a big fan of it, but you shouldn't pay to have someone shoot your rig. All it is, is using a compound coating on your bullets and firing them to lap the bore. You should leave it alone unless it needs it, Does the bore "choke down" in places?
my Rem 700 P is shooting well below 1/2 moa and i dont think i need at turing, bedding or lapping job or any gunsmithing for that matter
i did not ask this because i had any intention of doing so with my Remington 700P or any rifle i currnetly own
im just wondering what they cost for futrue rifles... turst me im not done buying rifles though im just takin a lil break for now
thinking that my next rifle might be a custom one thats why im askin
so far the ONLY modification im considering on my 700P is a McMillian stock probably A4 but since the HS stock already on there is more than good enough im not so sure that modification will ever get done
You should expect something like 7-9000 rounds out of a Remington heavy barrel before you need to replace it, especially if you continue to shoot quality ammunition from it. That and a cleaning routine that removes the copper fouling instead of just the powder residue. Just my 2 cents.
For the M24, the expected barrel life is 5000 rounds, but you only replace them when the groups open up (they are sent in to remington for barrel replacement). The average barrel life has been over 8000 rounds, some even closer to 12,000 :shock:
