I followed instructions n gave it a good scrubbing. After done that had a look down barrel n oh oh some spots I hadn't seen before. Not a lot just a couple. I'm wondering now will it be worth putting some rounds through to confirm that the barrel might have a issue or not? I haven't looked at the bedding yet to see if any issues there but most things from now I'd imagine are going to be a confirmation at a gunsmiths possible re-bedding n at best chopping re-crown and since I'm there threading. I'd say that will depend on where if/any pits are in the barrel n how much I'd have to chop.

I would look to the bedding first. Have you taken the stock off it???. One of the most common problems we come across is seeds and rubbish that are gathered over the years between stock and action or barrel. If the rifle gets wet they swell and cause quite large shooting errors, also if the wood get saturated and dries it will often have a twisting action on the stock causing poor accuracy.
I have just had to re-bed my Sako as the constant wetting and drying of the stock over the years had caused the stock to twist. A worn out barrel is one thing but some light pitting is not a great cause for alarm.[/quote]
I've never had the stock of in the time I've had it so will have a look. Being plastic it shouldn't have warped but will be checking barrel channel. I won't be able to shoot until weekend anyway so it'll give me a chance to have a look.

Being plastic it quite possibly has never been right. Fortunatly it us an easy fix.
