Until then you could open up the channel a little larger and bed anyway. You'll gain a little. It isn't a hard thing to do and you'll have a little practice in on a cheap stock you won't have to worry about messing up on. You can still shoot well with the factory most of the time. It is just gonna be a little better and more consistent with a good stiff aftermarket. Doesn't funding suck. Just when you think you've got it all together you gotta go digging for just a little more cash. I'm resigned to the idea that I'll never actually finish a rifle.
