"Ass glued to the bench syndrome" . That describes a couple guys I know. Excellent article Shawn, I learned a few more things from you. Thanks for your continued involvement in this site.

I was amazed at what an extra 5/8" of comb lift did for my long range consistency especially when I didn't think I had a problem. Your article reminded me that I needed to order another cheek piece.

Shawn

Great article. I've had the bug for a while to get a laminate blank (Joel Russo) for my 300RUM. I want to do the fitting my self. Right now I'm working on figuring out what I don't know and what other tools I need.

Any info, books or links for doing stock work would be greatly appreciated.

As for Lamiglasss, put his on the back burner, he's about got the turrets worn out already -LOL

I knew most of what you have written except having adjustable LOP for early and late seasons (clothing thickness). That is something that will be implemented on my next stock.

In closing, a special THANK YOU for you Shawn for all that you provide our community.

Re: Fitting The Long Range Rifle By Shawn Carlock

I tend to shoot more from the benchrest position, albeit usually prone, F-Class style, but off of a heavy Bald Eagle cast iron rest, and I found your article most informative. I did know some of the information, but the refresher plus the added info, shows me that when I get around to building my .338 Allen Express, I am going to have to do some bi-pod field work!

THANKS SHAWN, for another outstanding article!!!
