Re: Benchrest Magazine Follower Questions(s)
Based upon my experience I would avoid like the plague having any part of the action touching the follower if the follower is bedded to the stock.
Similarly, If you glue the follower to the action I would free float the follower so there is no contact under or around the follower.
The mistake to avoid is not get a pressure point in the middle of the reciever which will cause "rocking" of the action and change of point of impact every time the you re-tighten the action to the stock. Such and issue is hard to track down and very frustrating to shoot with. Being as the followers are made out of aluminum there might be some temperature expansion or contraction issues.
I think it is a great idea. I had been wondering what I would do when my FN action 240 gets out of the shop. I am not sure the long 105-115gr bullets will feed from the magazine without banging the fool out of the bullets. For $12.00 this seems like the cure.
