I like my flutes situated so that at the stock line the barrel is solid as it is on all factory built rifles. On customs I regularly see guys timing the flutes so there is a gap at the stock. This leaves lots of room for debris to get under the barrel. This way is much easier to do as the timing isn't as critical and the stock fit doesn't have to be as precise. With it being done so much I'm starting to think people prefer the gaps. Any insight?
