I damaged the sling swivel stud recess on the stock of my 300 Win Mag some time back. I had attached the Hart Accuracy Asset and it got loose and the stud damaged the epoxy of the stock. I used JB Weld to secure the stud but it is not in there quite straight. Normally it is not a problem. When big game hunting I normally use my Kramer Snipepod bipods which swivel/pivot. Recently though I attached a non-swivel Harris bench model bipod to see if I could shoot good groups with that and I noticed that the misaligned stud caused the rifle to be severely canted. So I had to extend one leg more than the other. I wonder if that would cause fliers due to not recoiling straight back but rather rocking off the higher leg. Do you have any thoughts on this? Rufous.
