Re: synthetic stock question

I skim bedded the action, lug,tang, and first 1 1/2 of the barrel. also made sure magazine wasnt being crushed between the action and floor plate. I can only think that its a problem with harmonics? WAS, a shooter, before?

Re: synthetic stock question

I assume you checked bases and rings if they tight? Could be scope issue as well... Try another scope just to see if pattern stays the same,sometimes polishing the barrel with bore restore helps...

Re: synthetic stock question

If you took your barreled action from one stock, and it was shooting well, and went to another stock, and now it's not shooting too well, I'd say you've got bedding issues somewhere.

Re: synthetic stock question

Have a professional do it----Will cost more in labor to remove your bedding so pitch the stock and start over.

Or, remove it yourself and have a pro try and re-bed it.
Most will be able to tell you if they can use the stock.
