Re: Fore end on my rifle too tight. Can I plane it?
Well, that's something I probably should have shared: I do hunt with a bipod, so I'm as apt to take a bipod shot as I am a over-branch/backpack/rock shot. Rarely offhand. I understand (well, I'm LED to understand, can't say I really get why) that some rifles shoot differently, different POI, off a bipod than they do offhand. I would think floating the sucker would do it, but I also read that on the non-bull barrels, those little "lifter" buttons that are in the end of the stock of so many production rifles help stabilize the barrel's harmonics and thus accuracy. That's different of course than the fore end pinch I'm getting.
Float it and get it off those stabilizer buttons?
