Re: Standard countour bbl on a mountain rifle?
I understand... I have a Remington 700 KS Mountain in 300WM, it has the Kevlar/Fiberglass stock. Mine also heats up real fast too. Can't really do any long range taget shooting, unless you wait 10 minutes between shots, because the POI changes so much. I will say, it's pretty consistent with cold barrel shot, if I do my part well.
My earlier point was you may not need a new stock if you pillar and bed your action, because you will likely use the existing barrel lug with your replacement barrel. With a heavier barrel contour, a forearm contact point - preload - probably won't be required.
