Re: Rem 700 BBL fitting question
I'm not positive here, but I beleive if you make the recoil lug thinner without shortening the back of the barrel you wind up squeezing the bolthead, maybe, guess it would depend on how far you have to go. Not sure how much clearance there is between the front of the bolt and the back of the barrel. If that makes any sense.
If there is to little space they do make thicker recoil lugs, though getting exactly what you need might be tricky, you may have to do some grinding.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
