Now my problem. With the not great synthetic stock that came on the rifle and the elevated base, I can't get a cheek weld worth a darn. I was using my laser bore sighter and could tell that no way in heck could I be consistent. Any suggestions on what to do? So far I've found a few things but wanted advice from the gurus on here.

Things I've found:
Beartooth Comb Raising Kit : Cabela's

Cabela's -- Accu-Riser Cheek Pad - Strap-on

You'd be better off getting a better stock first. You'll loose more accuracy with the flexy stock than poor cheek weld.

Another good cheek weld device would be an Eagle Stock Pack with some cut up mouse pad underneath.
