Re: floated barrel groups
You really need to get the bipod set up so that you are only attaching it to the stock so that you do not put any pressure on the barrel. I've seen a couple sling swivel set ups that go though the stock and into a boss on the barrel, this kinda thing could tighten the stock up to the barrel as you tighten the bipod.
I have rarely seen stupid questions, many more stupid replies!! Keep working on it you'll get it sorted out, like previously mentioned a pic may be helpful too.
