    I have a .308 RAR and love it! Just curious if I may... did you bed the stock to the factory free-float barrel, or was it only enough to just stiffen the forearm and still leave it free-float?

    The fore-end is filled, but the biggest benefit comes from bedding just in front of the forward v-block. Bedding captures the end of the receiver and barrel nut, but not the barrel itself. This prevents the fore-end from acting like a lever arm and flexing the stock near the receiver.

    The RAR is a good shooting rifle. Have messed with a few. The floppy fore-end is the only issue. And short mag for the 223.
