    Went out and shot 1 five round group at 500 yards today. I am pretty happy with the results!

    I would be too! Nice shooting. But you missed the bullseye.

    Im afraid it might change when I get my new stock, Being that it is NOT free floated right now. Do you guys think floating it will effect the accuracy? Silly question i know. but seriously, this rifle has shot better then i thought it could already...

    If it shoots the way you want it and you're happy, I would not have changed a thing! Just me.
