That's why there is a small pad at the front of the barrel channel in most, if not all, factory stocks. It's there to support the barrel. There are lots of fixes including something as simple as making a pad from pieces of rubber inner tube or similar material.

When you're chasing issues like you have, make one change at a time until you find the solution.
THIS is the single best piece of advice to offer anyone modding 10-22s from a stock Ruger rifle.
