Re: Extreme spread / Standard Deviation

Another thought...
You say that getting the action out of the stock is a chore. It's possible that your recoil lug isn't doing all of the work. Your magizine could be (inconsistantly) absorbing some of the recoil which could induce vertical stringing.

Re: Extreme spread / Standard Deviation

Actually, that has been suggested by a few of the locals at the range. Someone asked if it was pillar-bedded, and I didn't know, so I went home to take it out of the stock, as it had been a while. Takes me 5-10 minutes to get the thing out of the stock, *after* the screws are removed. And, no, it's not pillar bedded. The barrel is free-floated, w/ just a dab of bedding material about 1" in front of the recoil lug. It's getting to the point that it may be due for a pillar bedding job this summer, btwn rock chuck in the spring, and my (hopeful) trip back to western Nebraska in August or so.

Thanks,

Monte
