I own a Rem 700T in .30-'06. I have always been under the impression that a "free-floating" barrel was the best thing to have, and have used the dollar bill test on all my rifles. Therefore, I took a dremmel (sp?) tool and ground down the two ridges at the end of the forearm, of my 700T, that the barrel rested on. Yesterday, I read in a magazine that often times upward pressure on a barrel near the fore end actually can increase accuracy substantially. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Does it just take trial and error to determine which is best?
