Finally got around to work on my friends Ruger 6.5x55.
This rifle shoots hot and cold, I never managed better than 1.5" with
Lapua megas. Bigger problem is that the point of impact varied day to day. (we'll give it a go, if it goes tits up, it's not mine )
De oil stock.
Mark the forend, I gave it 1.5mm, goal is to widen each side of the
channel by 1.5 mm.
Dremel out the channel
Check gap, rather to much than too little
One can clearly see where the stock hit the barrel.
next is release agents
