Should the recoil lug be to the front or back of the removed recoil lug area?
The stock I have has a larger recoil lug opening than my Badger recoil lug is....so there is little wiggle room in Front/Back, Both sides, and the bottom...should the recoil be pushed to the front of the lug area or tight to the face of the Alum bedding Block? or does it matter...i was reading something about a floating recoil lug...
Rem 700, WSM
Any help would be appreciated!
The back of the recoil lug should make full contact with the stock. The sides, front, and bottom are not as critical, and having a bit of space in those locations makes removing the barreled action from the stock much easier.
