Rem model 7 Question

I just purchased a NIB model 7 in 7mm-08. My question is should I be concerned about the barrel touching the stock at the forend just under the sling stud? My first thoughts were to sand it down where I can run a dollar under it but it looks like it is made to touch here. It has a real high spot in the stock there. It almost looks like the stock is molded plastic or something like that. Is this stock wood?:confused:

    Shoot it like it is first and then if it doesen't shoot you
    can try bedding and floating.

    If it has the 18.5 in barrel it needs the tip pressure

    Should I bed the action? Mine seems like there is a lot of slop foward and backward. The recoil lug slot in the stock looks very sloppy and oversized to me. I guess I will just go shoot it first and see what it does...
