Hicks accurizer?

I have a Ruger #1 that has been rebarrelled to a 338 ultra mag with a 28 in bbl. It is accurate,staying under MOA with my hunting loads.The problem I have is shifting point of aim.1/2 to 1 1/4 in shifts from day to day.It is never the same poi.The scope is good,as it has done it with every scope I've mounted on it.I'm wondering if a Hicks accurizer would solve my problems with poi.any HELP will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hardcase,

    IT may help but this, unfortunately is a common characteristic of the Ruger #1. They perform great for conventional range big game hunting, but I simply will not use one if one of my customers want to shoot at extreme range with consistancy.

    Like I said, this may help some but generally the #1s will have this problem always to one degree or the other.

    Good Shooting!!!

    Thanks for the info.I pulled the foreend off the stock and saw a lot of contact with the barrell.I am in the process of free floating the forend.I saw how a hicks works wiht the set screw putting tension on the barrell.Sort of like a boss at the rearend.I have decided that with the hicks mortised into the wood,it will move with temp and moisture changes.The idea I have is to put a shim between the underside of the bbl and the spring hanger.That way I'll have a little tension on the bbl,it seems to like a little pressure,but the forend will be free floated.Hopefully,that will keep it constantly zeroed.Like I said,HOPEFULLY. thanks
