I noticed when I was shooting this Sunday a few issues that needed to be addressed. One was the scope was too high and too far forward causing a problem getting a good cheek weld. Another was the bolt was not as smooth as I like, so today I had some time and I took it apart. Sanded the inside of the receiver a bit, blue locktite on the v block and scope rail screws, changed the scope rings, did the aluminum tape bedding trick and put a couple ofpressure pads under the barrel. One right in front of the v block and a small one near the end of the forearm. Hopefully we will get some cooler temps later this week (been 94-99 everyday lately) and I can do some more shooting. I will post up the results then.

I have done the al tape on my own plus a few for friends, and it has always showed some improvement.
A steadier set up will also make a world of difference, plus some cooler temps. You would never catch me out there on days like your getting.

I have done the tape on some of my other 10/22s, it does seem to help. It wasnt too bad when I first started Sunday, I was in the shade but as the day progressed I was in full sun. I played with the pressure pad a little yesterday, enough to see the rifle shoots better with one near the end of the forearm.

I put a 19" GM HT in a Titan stock and while there was gap, I didn't think it bad.
And I loved the fact that I didn't have to do any stock work.



The gun overall shot well w match ammo, wanted sub half inch at 50 yards, got it.

But the rig was still pretty hefty (thank goodness I didn't go .920 bbl).
Would have kept it if I could get used to the Titan stock's vertical grip.

Thought the look was fine, overall (green and blued)......even w gap.

I suppose one could put something along stock sides to fill up gap, like strip insulation or something.

Why bother?

Well, we have finally gotten some relief from the heat here in the last week. High temps in the upper 60s low 70s and some much needed rain.
I have built a shooting bench, got a Caldwell rock BR front rest and bunny ear rear bag. Now to do some shooting!
