I been trying to get my 10/22 to shoot better...again. I was thinking...luckly thats not a habit of mine.....when I bought the gun and did a few slight mods to it, I started shooting it with the factory stock. Then I added a Kimber walnut stock that floated the barrel. This is the deluxe 10/22 with the 22" barrel... not the standard carbine type with the barrel band. Anyway, since I changed stocks the grouping has gone to pot.....maybe 2" at 50 yards on a good day. Now I get to thinking that maybe the stock is supposed to help support the barrel so I look at the factory stock and sure enough...there is a spot that looks like the barrel acually rested on it. Just a small spot near the end while it seems the rest of the barrel is floated. Does any of this make any sense or am I just ramblin? From everything I've read...the barell should be floated for accuracy. But is this true on all guns? Any ideas will be appreciated.
