    What would you want to do that for, unlike Remington they build them to acceptrable standards to begin with.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I don't think it would be worth while doing more than just lapping the lugs - which you can easily do yourself. Personally, i can't believe people are still buying Remington actions to get them trued up.

    This was Callum Ferguson's opinion on it a few years ago...

    If you are re-barreling a rifle it may be worth getting it blueprinted at the same time as all one job. The rifle may not need it in the first place. He also felt that for deer stalking purposes the difference it will make to an already accurate rifle is unlikely to be noticed. Shooting at paper is a different matter...

    Just think of the after market industry the Rem 700 provides a reason to exist .

    All rifles are built to certain manufacturing tolerences some will be at the top of these tolerences and some will be at the bottom, blue-printting is a term used to describe the re-manufacture to original dimensions and tolerences.
    With most rifles this can not be carried out because some dimensions cannot be reduced, so the term accurising or truing is a better way to describe re-working a rifle action.
    All factory rifles will benefit from truing but some more then others, at the very least when re-barreling the front reciever face shiould be trued to the bolt raceway.

    I wouldn't waste your money. Tikka rifles are normally straight shooters out of the box.
