    My 243 with a Boyd's Classic in salt & pepper. Arrived in perfect condition and looks great. This is my third Boyd's stock and like the others, minor fitting was needed to float the barrel - 15 min of sanding with a 1/2" socket wrapped in 100 grit sandpaper.

    Sounds hi teck but I usually glue sandpaper to the proper size piece of dowel, easier to hold.

    Sound easier and more accurate than my method!

    I put a prairie hunter on my XS7 in 308. Very slick and I should have ordered one with some checkering but it did make the rifle much nicer. It shoots much better. Mine is cut to 16.25” and I love it..... just realized I had already replied on this thread.

    I always bed the action and free float the barrel on all my wood stocks. It just makes it a lot more stable if the action is supported in glass. I know it is a lot of work but my philosophy is to do it right the first time and never have to mess with it again.
