Hi, My mate has a very heavy barrel Howa 1500 blued with the basic plastic and rubber over moulded Hogue stock in 22-250 that shoots really well off one of the big full length shooting bags but all over the place off a bipod.
On looking at the stock there is loads of flex in the fore end so we are looking to try to do something about it by filling it with something and re bedding including about an inch and half of the barrel.
Is is there anyone who has done this to a howa stock to stabalise it? What was the end result and what did you use in the fore stock? We intend to use acraglass gel to full length bed it.
