I took my savage .308 to a gunsmith i found online said he specialized in savages and long range shooting. I wanted it bedded, wanted him to check the crown and do his "accurizing" work. Also install a picatiny rail on top. I got it back and went to range and after 10 shots the scope mount was lose and falling off...no big deal i borrowed a fellow shooters torque screwdriver and re tightened the screws the groups were same as before right around 1 to 1.25 moa at 100yds but started stringing after 5 shots or so. I took the stock loose and this is what i found i have never bedded a rifle before but i though you didnt want anything touching the barrel out past maybe 1/2" to an 1" out hence free floating the barrel. Am i wrong here but he has a contact point 3 inches down the barrel is this suppose to be like this. Thanks for your help guys.
