The ADL stock is a bit stiffer, thus better for smaller groups if bedded and tuned accurately.

Could you expound on this principle please?

    sorry for that retarded question. at first i thought you said adl .270 so i figured that was some form of a wildcat. so you think the .270 is comparable to the .338 lapua?

    Chawlston,
    The reason Roy said that is because ADL stands for Action Drop Load, and BDL stands for Bottom Drop Load. So BDL has and opening at the bottom that will not allow it to be as stiff as the ADL.

    I mean that an ADL 270 is comparible in recoil to the thunder. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Eaglet stated it pretty well.

    I figure more wood more firmness and because cause Kirby says so.

    I'm really to a good enough of a shooter to tell the difference but all my rifles are rem 700s, single shot in an ADL stock. Some with the mag well filled.

    The rest of my stocks will not have a mag well at all.

    Thats what i wanted to hear [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] sorry if i sound like a sissy asking all these questions about recoil. I just dont want to drop the 5k in a rifle scope combo and not be able to shoot it.

    Re: Thunder@1400 yards

    If the action is bedded to the stock properly, and the action is secured into the stock properly along with a floated barrel, how is one shooting more accurately than the other due to the magazine well being present with or without the drop port? I always thought the reason to bed the action and float the barrel was to eliminate stock influences on the accuracy of the platform.

    I have two actions of the same manufacturer and both have the same stocks, barrels, triggers, scopes, scope rings and even the same color. One is glued in with a solid bottom and the other is a repeater version. The repeater version is much more accurate when shot side by side at 400 yards on sight-in days.

    I personally think the accuracy differences are due to the difference in the accuracy of the barrels vice the magazine wells........ At least on my setup
