Well I got this stock some months back.
I mounted the action. It fit pretty well. I only had to relieve a few points and then a lil more and deeper to make room for beding compound.
The barrel was not perfectly centered.
I pillar bedded first. When I did I also did the electric tape barrel trick to keep barrel centered.
I allowed this to completely harden for a couple weeks. Shot it and was pleased. THEN I went in a bedded the back of the tang and the back of the recoil lugg area.
Let that harden for about a week and shot it again. I was still pleased.
I pulled it out of the safe last week to show a friend... the barrel was pressing HARD on one side of the fore stock!!!
The wood has WARPED!!! The barrel channel is sealed as it came from factory. Everything I relieved was re covered with epoxy. The rifle is stored in a Safe with a new golden rod and its in a climate controlled home.
Not real happy and not sure what I will do.
