Default "Blueprinting" a Savage 110 BA to make the 1000 mark?

So at 300 yards having made a little beginner progress (.6 MOA group) with my Savage 110 BA I'm starting to think maybe one day I can actually make the goal of the same group at 1000.

I've been told though --'that while the Savage is a decent 'out-of-the-box' rifle it'll likely never make that distance unless I get some modification work done to it.' The first thing I was told was blueprint it. Another guy told me that, plus a Krieger barrel. Maybe a Timmeny trigger.

Anything else you guys would suggest?

I would suggest actually shooting it at that distance to see what it'll do before
worrying about any mods. While group size isn't necessarily linear as you increase distance, It may surprise you.

When you can reload better than over the counter match ammunition and when you can shoot better than the stock gun, get it trued and a match grade barrel professionally installed.

Completely unnecessary. Your average shade tree mechanic can put a barrel on a Savage.

Agree with switchbarrel. OP, you're saying your gun doesn't group well enough at 1000 but you don't even know what it will do. Besides, I though BA's were factory blueprinted.

But if you feel you must, search youtube for Vaughn Precision. He shows how to true the lug shelves and other stuff to optimize accuracy on a Savage.

If you are serious about shooting to 1,000 yards and bother to get the action trued and timed then you buy a match grade barrel blank and get it chambered to minimum spec and threaded true to the bore.

Why would you pay to "blue print" an action and then screw on a barrel with a mass produced chamber and threads?

Yes of course I am serious about shooting out to 1000. Thats why I posted on here. I am obviously very new to the sport and that's why I risk asking my dumb questions. I usually always get exceptional, non condescending, respectful feedback have learned a ton from the guys here. I never heard of blueprinting before yesterday.

I am about a month away from being able to invest in all my own reloading gear and learn from the very generous guy thats being so kind to make my custom precusion loads now. That also save me at least $1. a bullet or more.

Oh and I dont even know what it can or cant do at 1000 yet. Im not 'there' skill wise so I havent even attempted it. I just took another friend/gunsmith's word for it... That it wouldnt work. I'll try it before jumping into anything. Thanks

I don't think you need "blueprinted" work. My F-T/R is a garden variety 700 with a Shilen pre-fit from Brownells. I normally shoot NRA midrange which is 600yds. This rig works fine. I recently shot it at Santa Margarita Gun Club 1000yd match. It wasn't the rifle or my loads holding me back, it was wind reading.
