I just got a new 580 Tacticle.
I'm going to do some improvements one at a time and document the decrease if any in group size.
Most likely will go in this order. Targets will be kept and group sizes documented. All shots at 100 YDS.
1. Trigger Job
2. Steel bed the action
3. Bed the forend to the gas block with barel alligned with no presure on it.
4. Align and properly torque the gas block
5. Re cut the muzzle wit a specially made muzzle cutter. It cuts the muzzle so sharp that you can cut your finger on the hole in the muzzle (I've done it)
My goal is consistant 1" to 1.5" groups in 5 shot strings, I'm not trying for sub MOA. It's not needed in a tacticle style weapon.
I will also try a couple of 20 shot strings when done to check on stringing.
I hope not to have to make or buy a barrel support rail.
I might also try the cow pie looking Limb Saver Deresonator if I can figure a way to hide it. Don't want the critters laughing too hard at me.
The bedding should have a good result. Although the trigger group holds the action in the stock tight, as soon as you take the trigger group off, the stock just falls right off the action. It does not fit tight at all, in fact it's quite loose. The gas block is no where near to being parellel and I doubt it was torqued very carefully either.
I'll keep you posted as I progress. If it ever stops snowing and raining, maybe I can get out to test it.
I have not even got it out to break it in and get a baseline on the stock weapon yet
Best Regards, John K
