Here is a very good possibility:
I installed a B&C stock (700 ADL)from Midway this winter. The stock was not even close to being a drop-in replacement.
I had to do some major fitting and a lot of bedding compound was needed to do the job properly. I feel the Q.C. at B&C is very poor. If I had not taken the time (a week) to grind, sand, and bed the rifle, there would have been excessive stress in at least 4 points and my rifle barrel would have had over a 1/2" of upward pressure on it. I free floated my barrel.
It is likely the gunsmith did not pay very good attention to details and the stock may need to be rebedded and your barrel free floated. Especially if your stock was any where near as bad as mine was when it was delivered.
