Re: mismatched stock and barrel issues?

Okay so I borrow the McMillan stock off my dads 700 and the rifle is shooting significantly better (whew!). Next step is to buy one for myself. I eventually want to rebarrel it with a medium contour Krieger #4 or 5. If I buy a stock contoured for that barrel can I still mount the stock and shoot it with the factory barrel that's on the rifle now?

    Yes. Your barrel will just look a little lonely in that wide channel.

    Please know that if you bed your current barreled action into a new stock, you will likely have to rebed it when you rebarrel it.
