I purchased a lightly used Rem Model 7 in .308 for my wife. I have set it up with a basic Leupold 3-9. When I have shot this to sight it in, I am having ISSUES. The rifle will shoot alright, but will throw one out with some regularity. I have been told there is a point of contact between the forearm and the bottom of the barrel. Some have told me to free float the barrel. That it is likely the culprit. I have had others say, "don't do it". So help me out here. Anyone here have a Model Seven and experienced this? If floating is the solution, then why do they build it with point of contact? I love the rifle. It's perfect for my wife, size-wise and it is a joy to shoot, when it shoots where I want it to. I am really hoping to get this corrected asap as hunting season has started here and I want to be certain this rifle does its part for when my wife takes it out.
