Accurizing # 4
Here are pics of the posts. The sleeve that they fit in was tapped 3/8 x 16 from Derilin and glassed into the stock.
The upward pressure is easily adjusted with an allen head wrench from the holes in the bottom of the rifle.
I have only tested the pads twice with great results. I am kind of broke and cannot afford a lot of match ammo right now.
I think the mod shows promise with some tweeking.
It took more time than I thought it would, what amazed me was the groups I got with the Rem golden bulk ammo, the groups on that closed right up, they were really bad before and showed a major improvement.
I don't know if I already posted this, but my best 5 shot group at 50 yds was .474" with match ammo. There are not many carbines that will shoot that good, especially stock except for the barrel free float.
I would really like your comments, good or bad and any suggestions that you have.
This has helped groups and with more range time and time spent adjusting the pads, it will be interesting to see how good the groups may get.
I intend to modify the headspace on the bolt. It is .051" now and will be reduced to .043" and the FP will be pinned right above the pin to keep it from coming up when firing the weapon. This will also help groups
I may bed the action also.
My goal is a one hole group, but it will never get one. I don't know if I can do it, but I won't know unless I try.
