I know I read something about this topic but dont remember where.
Can anyone tell me if floating the forend is something worth doing
to get more accuracy out of a NEF Huntsman. If so could you suggest
how to do so. If someone has tried this, was there a noticeable difference
in 100yd groups. I dont know maybe this is a silly idea, just looking for
anything to increase accurracy.

Thank you for any wisdom shared about this.

Done it to my Huntsman, Sidekicks, Ultra Slug Hunter LE, and my semi-custom converted .45-70. All shoot great.

Just get an o-ring that fits over the forend lug, snug the screw down tight, then back it off a quarter or half turn. See if you like it.

You can experiment with different thickness and cross sections. That way if you don't like it, you can always go back.

Haven't needed to do that on the heavier contoured Sidekick barrel, but it helped get rid of fliers on my old 7-08 H&R. It also reduced the vertical stringing caused by barrel heating. Before doing the o-ring trick, my 7-08 was shooting 3-4 inch oval groups. Afterward it shot from 1 inch to 1.5 inch.
