First post here, I have a few questions. I have had a few rem 700's over the years but this is my first SPS in .308. My rifle is supposed to be a special run varmint with fluted 20" tactical barrel with 1 in 10" twist. It has the beavertail stock but the barrel seems to contact the stock, shouldn't it be free floated in this stock? Also, I have sighted it in and the Federal 180gr power-shok is the one I've picked out for hunting. Can anyone tell me what they've had best accuracy with out of this twist/length barrel for benchrest and hunting. I've read alot of posts on here about different stocks, I shoot out to 300 yds at the most, is a stock change gonna make that much of a improvement in accuracy at that distance? Thanks.
