    Default New Stock on Rem M700 Titanium seems to work fine

    I instaled the action into the new stock that Remington sent me after the first failed.

    I also installed a Rifle Basix trigger since the Remington trigger broke when the stock failed.

    I hauled it out to the range today to rezero the scope.

    Regular factory loads of Winchester 180 grains soft points did not do so swell.

    BUT, this stock, without any mods, seems to let the rifle fire Federal premium 165 grain boat-tails (a Sierra bullet) just fine.

    Here is a three shot groups with a couple minutes of cooling between rounds for the super thin barrel.

    This rifle loads just about anything from the magazine with out any hang-ups, which is more than I can say from some of my other rifles.

    Does that model have a free floating barrel, or a pressure point? my guess is its damped, as Ti is pretty whippy stuff.

    They come with a couple pressure points at the end of the barrel channel.

    On the original stock, I had to free float the barrel and glass bed the action lug. Then it shot OK until the stock cracked.

    BUT, for some reason or another, this stock, which is the same darn thing from Bell and Carlson, shoots just fine as is... At least with this particular load.
