Re: Rem 700 Synthetic Stock Needs Free Floating

Gentleman!

Thank you for the help.

I think I will take this task on myself. If not to improve the accuracy, at least to learn a process by doing it.

If I screw up, it's on you guys.

LOL! No, if I mess up, I'll just get a better synthetic stock.

Best to you,

    I took one look at the stock that came on my VTR and I ordered a HS Precision stock to replace it. I never fired a round through the rifle with that "thing" on it...

    I actually shot my VTR with the tupperware stock at first and was impressed with accuracy. But... I had to go one better and buy a BC Medalist stock for it. See my review @ Remington model 700 VTR.
