    I'm curious to know if any of you guys have free-floated the factory barrel on you Rem 700 LSS in 300 RUM. If you have; did the accuracy improve, degrade or remain the same? Has anyone had to put the pressure pad back into the forearm?

    I just can't decide if I should remove the factory bedding point in the forearm or not.???????????????????

    Varmint Hunter,
    I did! Specially if you're going to shoot off a bipod. Not all, but just about every rifle I've had shoots better when barrel is free floated! The only two times it hasn't been so is when using platic cheap stocks! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
