Re: Accuracy of wood Stocks

Just looking at some of wood 700 stocks on my bench. Most have Kick-eez custom fit pads.When fitted these pads were as clean a fit as any job I've ever seen. Look at some of them now and you would think they came off a different rifle! I know the plastic base of the pad didn't swell!! As much as I love to look at wood they'll stay on the bench.

Re: Accuracy of wood Stocks

Wood stocks aren't affected as much here in the UK as back home in SoDak, because it is always wet, never dry..So the stock doesn't dry out so much...What warps the wood stocks is it gets wet, then dry...Worst thing a guy can do is stick a wet stock in a dry gun cabinet, warp city!!!What I would do with a wood stock is do a full bed on the action, free float the barrel, and glass the barrel channel..Seal the sucker, and youre good to go..You may have to reglass the barrel channel from time to time depending on the climate..
