Aiming for Perfection: How a Custom Action Can Enhance Your Rifle's Accuracy

The Remington 700 is the most popular and widely used rifle for hunting, target shooting, tactical applications, and long range competition shooting. One way to customize a Remington 700 is to upgrade the action, which is the part of the rifle that loads, fires, and ejects the cartridge. Overall, custom actions can offer improved performance, durability, and customization options for the Remington 700.

It's important to note that custom actions may require additional fitting and may not be compatible with all Remington 700 models. It's always a good idea to consult with a qualified gunsmith or the manufacturer before making any changes to your rifle.

The Impact of a Custom Action on Your Rifle's Performance

A custom rifle action can significantly improve the accuracy  of your rifle. By providing a smoother and more consistent trigger pull, tighter tolerances, and a more stable platform for the barrel, a custom action can help you to achieve more precise shot placement.

One of the key ways that a custom action can improve accuracy is by having a shorter lock time. The lock time is the time between when the trigger is pulled and when the firing pin strikes the primer. A shorter lock time means that the bullet leaves the barrel more quickly, which can lead to a more precise shot placement.

Another way that a custom action can improve accuracy is by having a more precise fit between the action and the barrel. This can help to reduce barrel vibrations, which can negatively impact accuracy. A custom action can be designed with tighter tolerances than a standard factory action, which can also contribute to improved accuracy.

A custom action can also provide a smoother trigger pull, which can help the shooter to more easily hold the rifle steady during the trigger pull. This is particularly important for long-range shooting, where a small movement can have a big impact on shot placement.

Another benefit of a custom action is that it can be built to accommodate different types of cartridges. This allows the shooter to use a cartridge that better fits their needs, which can help to improve accuracy. Some custom action can also be designed with integral bedding features that help with the stability and accuracy of the rifle.

It's important to note that a custom action alone is not enough to improve accuracy. Proper barrel selection, proper ammunition, and proper technique also play a critical role in accuracy. A custom action can provide an excellent foundation  for achieving accuracy, but it's important to consider all factors when trying to improve accuracy.

some key points to consider when looking at your next rem700 custom action

1. Bolt design: The bolt is the part of the action that moves back and forth to load, fire, and eject the cartridge. Custom bolts can be made from high-strength materials such as stainless steel or titanium and may feature a different design or additional features such as an enhanced bolt handle or an adjustable bolt stop.

2. Trigger: The trigger is the part of the action that releases the firing mechanism when pulled. Custom triggers can be lighter and smoother than the stock trigger and may offer adjustable pull weight and other features.

3. Receiver: The receiver is the main part of the action that houses the bolt and trigger. Custom receivers can be made from high-strength materials such as aluminum or titanium and may feature a different design or additional features such as an integrated rail for mounting optics.

4. Chamber: The chamber is the part of the action that houses the cartridge. Custom chambers can be made to accommodate different caliber cartridges or may feature a tighter fit for improved accuracy.
