Well Cal, just so's you'll know I'm not prejudiced, I think you just bought the best rifle in the best caliber available to common men. I have a 1B in .223 that's an excellent shooter. I had to free float the foreend to make it consistent, but I did the cheap and easy thing by putting a small aluminum washer between the foreend and the mounting bracket. Works great. I just bought a new 1V in 22/250, stainless and pepper, which I haven't even fired yet. Will let you know. I had a blued 1V in 22/250 for a few years and found that the heavy barrel just about eliminated any problems caused by the foreend. Make sure not to over-tighten the foreend screw. I turn it just till it makes tension, then 1/2 turn more. Never a problem after that. Hope you have a great time with the new 1V. When you get a moment, carefully measure the twist of the barrel and let me know what it is. I'm compiling barrel twist data here.

All the best,
