A trigger job is always helpfull. But the bedding of the action and barrel are nice too. Which ever one you want would be good.

I agree with Jeffvn. Bi-pod isn't critical right now (can fire off of sandbags, etc) and a trigger job will help, as will glass bedding.

From what you've listed I would have to agree, definately handle the trigger first. But what kind of gun are u purchasing?

Don't know anything about the Weatherbys, do they come aluminum bedded like a 700? Don't know about the trigger job, definatley nice to have, but I don't know if you can adjust it yourself. I did my 700 5R myself but it took a lot of playing around and careful instruction. What kind of optics are you putting on it?

i have a bushnell elite 3-9*40 with the firefly reticle.... idk about trigger job i seem to be fine with it as i ahve been shooting it for about 7 months now, it does have a little creep and i prefer a little lighter but i can deal with it...this is my second 7mm and the other is a custom gun built from and Interarms Mark X, and that gun has a leupold varixIII on it

well with 168 grain mathckings it gets anywhere from .5-1 moa as it gets pretty windy down in my valley sometimes... and i dont know what bedding it has right now
