any benefits to no forend ?

i was thinking about freet floating and what not . Was wondering if you would have a more accurate gun if you cut the forend off right were the barrel goes into the receiver ?> plus ir would mean not having to channel out the forend if you went with a fatter barrel . also i seen bipods that mount on a rod ? that you can install into the stock

    If I remember right the originial the M2000 Intervention was set up that way and had issues because of the short radius. I also tried to mount a bypod close to the reciever on a G3 and it shot horribly. When I build a rifle I try to get the bypod as close the the muzzle as I can.

    Here's a picture of my 6.5x284. I'm thinking one advantage would be better barrel cooling as well as not having to worry about your stock warping and touching your barrel.

    It's made by Simonson Machine out of Gooding Idaho. It was made by/for Suarez out of New Mexico. It has a Rem 700 single-shot action bedded by a top-clamp into the Simonson stock, weighs 21lbs with the 8.5-25 Luepold Mark IV and has a muzzlebrake. It's crazy accurate too. My girlfriend shoots it into 1/2 MOA at 1000 yards all day long.
