Re: Winchester 70 ~ Should the barrel float?
Generally speaking, you 'should' free float your barrel from the recoil lug all the way out. In your case, shoot the rifle first and see how it performs. If it's eradic, then float the barrel. The guiding principle here is 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
