Re: my dilema

I would get a new stock. I have to agree with the other guys the forearm is not strong enough. Sounds like you did some slap bang work to try and get her shooting better but ended up shooting worse. I have been there before, I had a Savage 110 with one of thouse cheep plastic stocks. I did a wiz bang job to trying to stifen it up but the groups got worse. I broke down and got a Bell and Carlson stock 125 bedded and torqed it up and shot a ragged one hole group at 100yds with factory ammo.

Re: my dilema

wow thanks for all the replys so quickly. so what ive gathered so far is that the sst will be ok but better past about 200m. to have a clean barrel though before i went out yesterday i gave it a good clean i thought.

the carbon build up thing. does 7.62 solvent not disolve it????
a new stock. hmm id like if i can get her shooting again without getting one since the student allowance here doesnt really pay that well.

would load development have been different if the rifle was barrel was dirty apposed to shooting it when clean now

Re: my dilema

and with the stock stiffness. can anyone out there who has a "stiff" stock squeeze the barrel and stock together. i can but it takes alot of effort. i think that the barrel bending contributes to this as well

If your groups are not just about equal with or without the bipod then you need to correct that first.

I have a Savage with a Tupperware stock. I put a second sling stud just in front of the recoil lug for using a bi-pod.

hey edge
the groups before the bipod were in the inch area. now there out around 3inch mark. same area just bigger groups

Is the 3 inch group with or without the bipod?

Re: my dilema

You need to remove the bipod and shoot again.

Clearly if the group shrinks then the problem is the stock/bipod.
