  • Rifle Accurizing

  • What is Rifle Accurizing?
    This is the process of improving the accuracy of a rifle.

    For a hunting rifle,  if it will be used out to 300 yards or beyond, it will need to be capable of grouping 1” (one inch) or less at 100 yards. This means that it needs to be able to place the bullet accurately at 300 yards, which necessitates a grouping of 1” or less at 100 yards for this to take place.

  • The ability to hit the same place over and over again in a repeatable fashion, are the goals of accurizing.

  • Checking for Rifle Accuracy Issues

    Apart from human error, the accuracy of a rifle depends on three variables: the rifle, the scope, and the ammunition being used.

    If our discussion and initial investigation rule out the scope and the ammunition, we will then focus on determining the problem with the rifle through a series of grouping tests...

    • A grouping that is consistent in form but of a size of around 3” is indicative of poor bedding.
    • A grouping that “strings” vertically or horizontally is indicative of poor bedding.
    • A grouping that appears randomized, of a diameter of around 5 to 6” is indicative of a mechanical flaw in the rifle metalwork, particularly the barrel.
    • A grouping that closes up with pressure point bedding is indicative of either a flaw in the bedding or a problem within the barrel.

    Once we've narrowed down the problem, we can begin the accurizing process.

    We can take a poor performing factory rifle and turn it into a finely tuned accurate rifle!

    We do bedding with Match Grade Bedding products, trigger tuning, and custom hand-loading to suit your rifle.

  • What is Rifle Bedding?

    Rifle bedding is fundamental to rifle accuracy. The term bedding refers to the fit and stability of a barreled action within the rifle stock.

    If the fit and stability of the metal work in relationship to the stock is poor, the rifle will be in-accurate.
