I was sighting in my Howa 1500 .30-06 yesterday for deer season. After the barrel warmed up it started walking all over the target. I had it free-floated by Allison & Carey a couple years ago, but didn't go hunting last year, and I haven't had time to go to the range this year. What I discovered was that the first 6 inches or so of the stock (from the fore-end) is indeed free-floating, but doesn't have enough clearance. I can only slip one dollar bill between the stock and barrel for that first 6 inches. Two bills is no-go. After 6 inches even one bill hangs up. Obviously this is why the rifle shoots all over the paper as the barrel warms up. I'm really disappointed in Allison & Carey.
