Lugs that are tapered can be removed easier than the strait ones but there is no difference in
the accuracy potential unless you remove the action a lot. then the tapered one does less damage
to the bedding.
The main thing to look for is a surface ground lug that is precise. I prefer a .200 or a .225 thick
lug because of the stock. (Any thicker and you have to remove to much stock material in the
recoil recess to make room for the heaver/thicker ones and they are not nessary because most
factory lugs are .187 and strong enough but not ground flat/true.
Some people like the .250 thick lug and that is the thickest I would use under any circumstance.
Just my opinion
