The wedge may very well be your problem. I had nothing but problems with the accuwedge. My suggestion is to remove it completely and tighten the forward action to 35in/lb while holding the rifle vertical and putting downward pressure on the action (to ensure the the recoil lug is contacting the accustock pillar fully). Then tighten the rear screw to 35 then the front to 55-60 then rear to 55-60.
Im not talkkng out of my arse here. I'm not sure how old your rifle is, but savage has done away with the accuwedge in newer accustock rifles due to inconsistent performance. I had two older accustock rifles. Both performed better without the wedge.
