I see that there are basically two methods for "accurizing" the Ruger #1.
The one is to free float the forend... only.
And the other is to free float the forend, AND add a tension screw/Hick's devise from the hanger to the barrel.
I understand "free floating."
But what I don't understand is why, after doing all the work to "free" the forend (which is attached to the hanger) from barrel contact would someone then go and once again make contact by installing a tension screw?
When one free floats a bolt gun they don't then go and install a tension screw.., so, why do it with a Ruger #1?
I got marked improvement just by shimming and "light" sanding, I don't understand the reasoning of following that up by once again making ANY contact with the barrel?
Can anybody explain this ? Has anybody just "floated their #1 barrel and not installed the "tension devices?"
