Re: Accurate Action?

I think what Edward was trying to say is that we need every single detail about the gun and the build that was done, if you have a reciept for the work it should be itemized and reflect everything the smith did to your rifle, that would help us eliminate some issues.

What stock did you use. is it bedding block or pillar bedded? epoxy skim coat?
Who mounted the scope? is the front base screw bottomed out on the barrel thread tennon?
Is the barrel making contact anywhere with the stock?
Have the rings been lapped?
Are any of the rear scope base screws touching the bolt body?
Is the mag box bound up?

The more info the better, If your having difficulty with these answers call a smith and have him look at the rifle, or take it back to your smith and have him look at it again.

Re: Accurate Action?

Jim, Thanks for the clarification. I had sent the rifle off to Colorado to get it worked on, and hate to send it back ,it has been over 2 years anyway. Thanks, Ron
