okay so I figure I'm interested in the ballistics side of the issue not cosmetic so I'll post here first. I've got an Remmy XCRII that is bonestock except for a Timney trigger. I've had it out to the range a few times and can't seem to get it to group better than 2.5 or 3". I've tried 185 Berger VLD's, 208 Amax's, and a handfull of powders with little to no change in group size. I noticed the stock is in full contact all the way down the barrel and know that can cause a big problem. Eventually I want to throw a nice barrel and stock on it, but after just being furloughed I need to watch the outgoing $$$. My question is, can I put a stock designed for a medium contour (shilin #4 ish) on the gun while using the factory barrel to see if that's the big issue or should I just buy a stock designed for the factory barrel and buy another when I rebarrel the gun. Thanks for the help! - AC oh I should note the gun is topped with a Vortex Viper PST with Larue rail and rings, so I'm reasonably sure the glass isn't the issue. I can also usually hold .5 MOA or so on a good day so I don't think it's me... could be wrong but eh, whatcha gonna do.
