I'm just a little curious. You've said that it was worth it, so does that mean you've noticed a good bit of a gain in accuracy?
I went from 1moa being my best possible group I could ever do on a perfect day. To 1/2moa consistently no matter the conditions. No mote flyers either. 1/4moa if there's no wind & it's not to hott.

That's pretty surprising. I figured it might cut a small bit off of your groups, but not cut them in half like that. I guess my next little project will be taking some material out of my barrel channel then.

What exactly is free floating your barrel and how much would it cost for a gun smith to do this

Thanks. I like it so far. Want to go to the range but really don't want to burn up ammo. Pain to get more.

Free floating barrel is where the barrel does not sit on the stock. It's above it. U can take a piece of paper and slide it under ur barrel and the stock.
