How to build a Precision Rifle


Where should you start to build a precision Rifle? At the beginning and the means determining what the goal is. So many of us never know when we've succeeded . . . Sounds a little silly, but it isn't. In terms of project management 80% of any goal can be done cheaply . . . It's the next 20% that could cost millions.

Everyone seems to think precision can be bought . . .Maybe in a perfect world but a factory gun is still a factory gun. Don't get me wrong . . . A factory gun is a great place to start. Just find one you like. We like to start with a Remington 700 or a Savage . . . Savage has the Accu Trigger, thus eliminating the trigger pull problem.

Then it's a question of caliber . . . The largest caliber is going to require more gunsmithing, because the recoil is going to damage reliability factors . . . Zeroing and holding zero of the scope . . . And never forget creating bad shooting habits. Simply put, if it hurts, you're going to avoid shooting or seldom shoot. Adding a compensator will decrease recoil force by 30 to 50% . . . Bring on that 338 or 300 Winmag.

Now you're shooting . . . Zero in your gun at 100yards, 200 yards or 400yards . . . Sure you could determine clicks of the scope, but how about setting the scope and forgetting it.  Many shooters zero at 200yrds knowing that 100yrds is two inches high and 400yrds is two point whatever inches low . . . And that takes practice and with time experience will come . . . And then maybe you'll want to learn to use the scope, maybe not.

Now you want 1" groupings . . . Maybe touching . . . The same hole !!!

Action Blueprinting . . . Actions are fit in a fixture and centered off bore line. Lugs, face and threads are recut to true bore.
Glass Bedding . . . Bedding action and recoil lug, leaving barrel free floating.
A trigger job and add a new Stock, recoil pad and shoot some more.
Reloading . . . Reloads are fit to the gun they were last fired from . . . Hence they are fit to your gun for a tighter grouping.

Talk to your Gunsmith or Ours to see what's the right way to go for you. And remember you'll always be as accurate as you want to . . . We are WITAC, We are WITAC gunsmithing. We do what others say they do . . . Wisconsin gunsmiths near milwaukee.

WITAC Action Blueprinting
This is the starting point for making a truly accurate rifle. Actions are indicated in a fixture and centered with .0002" off of bore line. Lugs, face and threads are then recut to be true with bore. This can be done on all bolt action rifles. Single point re-cut rear of bolt lugs and bolt face perpendicular to the bolt body center line . . . New barrel is required once complete.

Installation of new barrel
Barrel blank is installed into lathe and centered off bore line to within .0002". Tenon is cut to the threads of the action, not thread specs. This makes a tighter fitting barrel with less movement which allows for better accuracy. Barrel is then chambered to minimum match headspace. Finished by contouring the barrel to specified contour and match crown.
