    Can I switch between two bedded stocks without having a change to my zero?

    Thanks.

    Anytime you move the action screws, POI will change. Why take a chance? Get to the range and check it.

    What Chad said.......

    Few and far between though.

    I have two rifles that I can disassemble and reassemble, obeying torques and stuff. Their poi does not change but I always check to make sure......

    It is possible but not likely.

    We tested five light weight stocks out of our production on my test rifle.
    They all had the same POI. These were not bedded but fitted very well and all came out of the same mould.
    My custom sako 308 has a different POI with a heavy laminate bedded stock compared to a light carbon stock that is also bedded.
