My Rugger 77/22 is giving me fits it was average steel gun and silhouette .
I will hit out to 300 meters and hit a 10" gong with cci sv
Went and added a pic rail to mount a buy pod my accuracy went out the window
The 77/22 is a all weather the only thing i maybe putting stress on the receiver .
Should i float the barrel ?

Well talked to other shooters they said ditch the pod .
Too much flex in the stock that changes contact points on the barrel .
So we will see go back to what worked before bags
Went to the pod for other type of shooting .

I had a 77/22 Hornet that gave me a fit. I floated the barrel ( I thought ) I checked the barrel clearance it was good. But the forearm was flexing and touching off a rest and bi-pod. I took more out of the stock. Check gap when it is on the bi-pods.

I like my bipods...Harris and Sinclair.
But my factory stocks just can't deal with them being mounted out on the sling stud.
The springboard effect throws strays all over the place. What to do? Hmmmmm....:(

How do you stop stock flex when those factory stocks just don't have the strength needed? :unsure:

If there was some way to combine the steel barrel with the wood stock to create a composite structure.
It'd kill the flex and let me use my bipods without going boiiiinnnnnnnnnngggggggg. o_O

If you can bed a receiver to stop movement, why not the barrel too? :cool:

My rifle i a Ruger 77/22 all weather that the stock has ribs that you can't bed the barrel
The receiver on the all weather has no trigger guard so a different stock would cost to much
thinking about a different way to use the POD

    Mill slots lengthwise down the forend. Epoxy cut carbon shafts in to add rigidity. If you don't have broken arrows laying around, get the stiffest spine you can.

    It's done quite often to fix that exact issue.

    Before you go chopping on that stock, you may want to look at what those are selling for. A good condition 77/22 rifle with the zytel stock will easily bring 8-900 dollars. ive seen wood stocks for your rifle on numrich gun parts for as cheap as $100 and the trigger guard might cost another $50 or so. You will take twice that OFF on value if you start “modifying“ that original stock.
