I did handle it with care but it did not say anything about shooting. The way i see it shooting is different than handleing it.

    That stock has made me want to build a Rem 700 in 223 with the Mini 14 bottom metal. Wish they offered it for Savages.

    I liked the looks of your rifle enough that I just ordered a Axiom rifle stock for my Vanguard.

    sniperjwt,
    After looking at your post again, I would recommend changing rings to get your scope down closer to the barrel. This will give you a better cheek weld and more relaxed position when shooting. You will be more accurate and shoot better groups.
