Re: My first build
Sadly it does. The problem with the factory stock is really all the flex you get from just in front of the recoil lug forward. It doesn't take much effort to twist or push the stock up against the barrel. It just doesn't make for a very steady shooting platform. Bedding may help you a little but shooting off a bipod with the factory savage stock isn't a good recipe for repeatable accuracy...most of the time. Look at some of the B&C stocks or even a boyds laminate. With some pillars and bedding the boyds are a good stock. Even the B&C duramax is an upgrade to the factory savage.
