The SPS stocks are not very good so I would recomend shooting it first. If it shoots ok leave
it alone. Sometimes removing the tip pressure will hurt accuracy on sporter weight barrels
so try it first.

The best thing to do is to replace the Tupperware stock with a better one and do a pillar bed
on it (Pillars and a good bedding job).

You can find a good laminate stock for about $150.00 or less that will solve the problem.
