Re: Rem 700 stock pressure

Thanks guys. I always shoot off of a bipod and I noticed that the side clearance between the barrel and stock is too small at the forend. With a slight bit of torque while shooting from the bipod I can see where the barrel would easily touch the stock. I had my buddy take the rifle to a our smith and he agreed that this is most likely our situation/problem. He is going to bed the action, open up the barrel channel and completely free float the barrel. Hopefully we'll have a different animal when it gets done

Re: Rem 700 stock pressure

Please update us on how this works out. If you end up needing another stock or other work, stay up to date on here. This is a great teaching aid for the rest of us.

Thanks, Ed
