bedding an HS Precision stock
I have a HS Precision stock for a long action Winchester M70. Action dropped right in- no problem there- but when you install the floor plate, the plate is bound up at the hinge. With the action pressed down into the stock, the magazine does not reach the bottom of the stock, there is probably a strong 1/16 th or so of stock proud of the magazine.
I believe the aluminum block is a little to far up into the stock. The bbl is a little high in the bbl channel as well. I think before I skim coat the aluminum with epoxy, I need to move the surface of the aluminum block behind the recoil lug down until the floor plate operates correctly. Does this seem right?
