Just about any 700 with a heavy barrel and a good stock should get you sub moa with good ammo.
DBM is a sweet upgrade but also not needed right away.
When I shot an FTR practice, my mag was useless as I was only allowed to load one at a time.
So minus those two things there should not be any need for smith work.
Even then, some dbm's are drop in and may not require smith work either.
I don't plan on changing my barrel until it won't group tight anymore.
