I tried to drop my rem 700, 300 rum into a new Bell and Carlson Alaskan stock and am somewhat dissappointed. The website it got it from, Stockys, states, "as close to the proverbial drop-in fit as it gets!"... so I get it today, try it on and the bolts are already bottomed out without turning a thread. I read the instructions and notice a line that says if the bolts dont fit, just order them... if thats the norm, send the dang bolts with the stock! after a few cuss words I do get them to bite but my floor-plate looks bowed out at the bottom... also the barrel isnt floated at all. Is this normal or am I just too green at "gunsmithing"?
