Hey guys, I am a total noobe to long range. I just picked up a very slightly used Rem 700 Police in .223 26" barrel, HS Stock, etc. I have been an avid hunter for years, and after missing a shot on a distance moose I felt it was time to start getting better with my long range shooting. Plus this year i have secured a couple of varmint grounds.. my question is this; If I remove the stock in order to clean the gun more thoroughly will it change zero? If so how do you guys clean your firearms afger shooting in the rain/bad weather. Thanks, P.S. You guys (posters) write about some really amazing $h!t thanks for everything hopefully i can post some more useful item in the future.
