    Well, you could take it to a riflesmith and have him fit a new barrel. Dave Folwell (trading as Bowtec in Birtly, Co Durham) could certainly do that for you. He has been fitting Bergarra (Spanish) barrels of later, and they shoot as well as any other you care to name.

    Alternatively, you could hunt around for a Parker-Hale 1200TX, which is a 7.62x51 target rifle. They are not expensive and shoot surprisingly well. I have one with a 1:12" twist which shoots 168gr bullets to abour 1.5 MOA at 1,000 yards and my club has another (1:14" twist) which shoots 150gr bulets to 1 MOA at 600 yards (but doesn't like the 168gr bullets one little bit). The latter has not been shot at 1000 yards since I tested it with the heavier bullet, which is why I quote 600 yards for it. You can see an item on the latter rifle here http://www.teessideshooters.org.uk/index2.htm Go to the "Photo Gallery" and scroll down to "The Club's 7.62mm long range rifle".
