Remington 760, Making it accurate and another problem.

I know this is not really a rifle that is know for accuracy. But does anyone know any tricks to make it more accurate?

Additionally my 760 has a feeding problem, the bolt will not close fully on a round. I am suspecting the ejector clip, but not sure. Untill the rifle will chamber reliably I won't use it in the field.

Other 'smithing' tricks that can be used on a 760?

Any information greatly appreciated.

No accuracy tricks for the 760 that i know of. Be happy if it shoots 2" groups or under @ 100 yds.,that all my 30-06 will do. As for the feeding problem, does this happen with factory ammo or reloads?

i have a 760bdl in 270win and it closes kinda hard when chambering a round. you really have to slam it shut . it is very accurate,i killed a buck out of my blind the season at 405yds with it. cranked the ranging turret up to 400 yds and dropped him in his tracks. on the bench its shooting my reloaded 140grn hornady's at 3/4in at 100yds. not bad for a old beat up 1970 pump. its also a lefthanded gun.
