    Sako 85 synthetic stock bedding side wall contact question

    My stock grips on each side of the receiver. Do people think I should sand it out or leave well enough alone ?

    Current 5 shot grouping is consistently 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" but never under moa.

    I rubbed builders pencil over the metal and put the action in and out so contact shows up here as silvery areas.

    changes to where ever, always south island
    A zako should go better, much better. Either rebed for proper contact or look at load development. Either one could be the desisive factor. I myself would be sending to the smith for better results as obviously well enough is nowhere near or u would not be worried about and have posted.
