    I was just reading a article in Field and Stream (Outdoor Life is the best!) in the December January issue about how you can take your gun apart, put some sort of clay around the action and other places and reduce the size of your bullet groupings greatly. Unfortunately, I can't find that exact magazine. Maybe it's on their website? Sorry to be unspecific. I'm not sure how much it would cost but I can't imagine it could cost you much.

      First thing to do is make sure everything is tight all you bases and mounts.Check your bore or have it looked at by a smith.Depending on how accurate you want it most rifle from the factory now will shoot moa out of the box.The barrel must be cleaned properly and kept clean to shoot accurately.If you have no success take it to a smith and save yourself some grief,It may be your scope.

        cabellas sells a barrel deresignator for around $20
        it would help with keeping your barrel still while the pressure and the bullet are travleing thu it. I have a few friends with them on older guns that the throat has started to erode from alot of shooting and it has helped bring the groups back to a smaller size.

          The best/cheapest/fastest low-tech fix I've ever found is to put a small (like 1 inch or so) square of bicycle innertube under the barrel at the very end of the forearm. Then, snug (but don't over-tighten) the action and barrel back to the stock. The suggestion above of checking to make sure everything else is snug as well is a good one.
