Re: Accuracy nodes
You are largely right about the viberations, don't know as it's "mostly" any direction tho.
Nor, in spite of some firmly held opinions, is there any way to say exactly where and how a given barrel is whipping for best accuracy; it's just not that clear. The vibrations are quite small, they start when the pin falls and continue while the bullet travels down the bore. The total time is very brief, the whole rife is moving and I don't think a soul on this planet has been able to watch what's happening so it's "best wild azz guess" work.
Pick a position that sounds good to you and support it as strongly as you can while others pick another position with simular logic.
Bottom line, it's interesting to talk about but it really doesn't matter. All we can do is try to find where it works best for our rifle(s).
