    Bought a used 7mag sendero last spring, was side tracked with building a home, and moving. Getting around to dialing it in, it shoots factory ammo fine, have changed the scope, and mounts, and re worked the factory trigger. The problem now seems to be with point of impact shift when the stock is removed. I found that my stock was touching the barel around the swivel stud and at the chamber. I enlarged the barel Chanel and was going to bed the action when I decided to order another stock, I was going to have to adjust the comb height any way so I bought an adjustable stock. I had always wondered what it was like for a stock to fit me. Well I received it today and the barel is so tight down the length of the chanel that no paper will go between the stock and the barel. This stock is for the heavy varment barel any ideas? I hate to modify a new stock that cost as much as this.
    Thanks, William.

    I have yet to buy a stock at any cost that didn't need modified one way or another. It's just part of the game.

    So it's normal to have to hog out the barrel channel? What else might I have to do? Should I bed it?

    Bedding is the only way of ensuring a perfect fit.

    I would get some wood dowel a little smaller than your barrel diameter, some sandpaper and float it first to see what that does.
