    Lots of LA's around, bugger all SA models. You're lucky in that regard.

    Haha, here we go: @Kiwi Greg what do you have in the way of S/H Rem700 short action stocks? Looking for something to be mongreled onto a DM action (the one with the relief cutouts for the magazine release buttons)... Seems that a lot of stocks have the foam core running through the area of the cutout so you are breaking into the stiff outer layer each side of the action, and it's going to be a bit of a major to reglass and stiffen the stock back up after making the cuts.

    Happy to do the work, but not to a full-price brand new one in case I don't get any improvement over the current shockingly flexi SPS stock.

    Issue is definitely stock bedding related, fit into a standard BDL-type stock and things get 50% better (2.5-3" groups drop to 1.5" at 100m), tried a HS-Precision off a LTR and that dropped things down to 1/2" to 3/4" depending on ammo. The fly in the ointment, is with the DM actions there isn't anything in the bag of the action to hold the internal mag follower down so I either have to run a tactifool DM bottom metal set or stay with the factory DM (which I don't mind).

    Cheers
