PPU is very good stuff; I use 174 gr for target shooting and then reload the cases. They are a good basis to evaluate your rifle. Hand loads may improve a bit over the PPU; but not by much!
I would suggest you shoot it before taking it apart. If it's really good; maybe wait before you strip it down to do the wood.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Be advised theres an ammo shortage of many popular calibers right now. .303 isn't the most "go to" one for the AR .223/5.56 brigade, but strike while the iron is hot or you may find some ammo hoarder grabbed the lot.

yeah, I am really loathe to remove the furniture as touchy as you guys are telling me fore-end and handguard fit is for accuracy.  will def shoot it before I do anything.
