Welcome to the forum from NC. Lots of good info on here. Probably the first question is do you reload? If so you’ll be able to do a lot by finding a bullet weight and load that your gun likes.

What exactly do you have, ammo you are using, what kind of accuracy are you getting and what is your expectation?

There are some standard tricks like floating end of the quarter rib if it has one, floating the barrel/spacing the forend, various pressures on the barrel, as well as kid development, but need more info please.

BTW, welcome from Michigan

Jigman, The #1's are some beautiful rifles, but accuracy has always been hit or miss. Reloading for the #1 is paramount regardless of caliber. Here's a link for some things that you can do yourself. Granted it's a little dated but the tricks are still the same.

Welcome from California’s High Desert and to the forum. Reloading is a must for contestant accuracy.
