    The problem, real or imagined, is the lack of solid wood between the recoil lug and magazine well. At the receiver face, like a 700, is maybe better than a mauser or m70. Even mauser put a cross bolt on the military rifles shooting a puny 8x57

    Yep- but that "issue" disappears with a proper receiver/ pillar bedding job, which would be a must.

    I'm just not a fan of anything other than a free-floating barrel, period. To each their own...

    Tobnpr, that may be good practice, and I agree on a .308 Win, .30-06, etc, etc but the reason this is done on hard recoiling rifles, like the .458 Lott, .505 Gibbs, etc, is the recoil is so harsh, the stock can crack or fail, without this feature.
    And the last thing you want when your hunting Dangerous Game, is your stock falling apart in your hands, just after you fired the first shot.

    D'oh!
