I just picked up a Remington 788 in 243. $250 with a period 2.5x7 Weaver on it. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. Did a quick clean and the bore is spotless. It doesn't look like it has been hardly shot. The clip doesn't have any wear, bolt has little and the scope isn't indicative of a high volume shooter. My question is to those who are more familar with the 788 than I am. I do have one in 243 that I have had for about 30+ years and it is extremely accurate. I noticed that this one has the barrel definitely lodged solidly into the forearm. My other (old to me) one has a pressure area about 3" back from the end of the forend. The new one (to me) is so tight at the end of the forearm you can feel the resistance as it is pressed into the forearm. What has been you experience with the 788 for free floating, etc? Thanks in advance.
