    Re: Laminated stock warpage?

    I witnessed Mike kill a prairie dog at a laser measured 794 yards with this rifle. I also saw him miss those two coyotes at rock throwing distance with the same rifle. Earlier that day, he missed a running antelope by about a football field.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Just when you think you hang out on a forum with knowledgeable folks, you realize you're in the company of rank ameteurs.
    It's not the stock.
    It's not the barrel.
    It's the action that's warped, right at the end where the barrel screws in.

    My $0.02...


    Dryness + time + bedding + differential between materials = shrinkage and bedding changes.

    I am willing to bet the bedding compound has a different density than the wood and shrinks / expands at a different rate. One would think the epoxy in the laminate and the bedding compound would be immobile, but since it is so dry, shrinkage makes some sense. Of course if the wood has changed slightly, dimensionally, the bedding would likely shift causing allignment changes.

    But I am just using logic...

    So, I guess the general consensus is that a mass produced factory lam stock could warp?

    I missed the yotes by at least that much. You know the rocky background they were standing in. I never saw a dust cloud from a single one of those shots.

    Well, you need to figure out which way to point it and you may have something.

    Well, yeah. It's the only thing that CAN warp. Just because ________ made it, don't mean squat.
    Side note, I saw where big green axed a few higher ups the other day.

    I hope they axed the ones that made my stock. It once put 4 out of 5 shots into 3/4" at 300 in a 40 mph wind. It's gonna take a while to get that confidence back.
