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

    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
