    I am purchasing a remington 700 sps tactical with a wonderful injection molded plastic stock.
    I understand these stocks can be a little limp on the forestock allowing the barrel to touch the stock when bipod or rest is used.
    Does anyone know if there is a way to stiffen the forend of the stock? Can it be glass bedded?
    I purchased this rifle with the expectation I may have to put a different stock on it.
    I am just unsure if these Hogue stocks can be modifird to be stiffer.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    I have a Hogue with a full length bedding block on my Rem 700 .243 and I don't have any problems with the fore end flexing.

    I have a 700 SPS Tactical with a Jet Zed moderator, shoot off a bi-pod most off the time and have no problems with stock flex.
