Re: Remington 700 scope mounting problem
From the beginning, I was curious as to how the new barrel shot so far off from the oritiginal barrel but the poster didn't ask for possible reasons.
My guess is that the new barrel was held in a lathe in such a manner that the muzzle was considerably off axis. Some 'smiths try to get the breach end of the barrel aligned with the lathe spindle and permit the muzzle to run "wild". It doesn't take a lot of misalignment to cause the new barrel to be off-axis of the receiver.
Just a guess......
