Floating the barrel is simply making sure that the barrel doesn't contact the stock anywhere along the barrel channel I personaly like a big gap 1/8" or more this way I know that their no way that I can inflect any sort of stress on the barrel from the stock , BUT , you can get stuff in their that will cause a problem if you not careful.

You can free float a barrel without bedding it but I like to do both even in stock like the HS precision that have the aluminum bedding block. Doing both also helps to make sure that your barrel channel will be even.

At just one email Joel Russo called me and we spent a good 20-30 minutes BS'ing about recoil, and stocks, and all the stuff that gets guys like us all warm and fuzzy.

I was going to buy an A5L for my A-bolt and I ended up trading the gun for a new project.
I will try to get these pics that James Jones sent me when I was asking about Joel Russo.

Re: Custom Stocks

Does Joel Russo have a web site. I'd like to see the rest of his stock designs.
