    Something must be out of whack with the timing of the posts, or I'm so slow at typing I didn't have a chance to read yours before I posted. Sorry! @SOCOM42 Stupid dog wants out all the time breaking my post up.

Ta heck with that, I'll use as is. Thanks again.
    Yes, it needs what is called skimming, a partial re-bed, with the removal from the bedding,

    small pieces even large break away, ruining accuracy.

    No problem.

    I have in the past here spent an hour typing out something (hunt and peck) for someone.

    That person never acknowledged the posting, thought it was in error.

    Happened a couple more times, will not give that person the sweat off my ass ever again.

    SNY stocks are strong and light. However the is something to having a heavier weapon. Weight helps with recoil often improving 2nd and third shots.

    @1skrewsloose , I forgot to mention one thing.

    You will need to re-zero the rifle with the glass stock.

    Should not be out more than 1 or two clicks, mostly elevation.

    Mine (M-1's, M-14's) all have standard battle sight settings for MOM.

    Any questions, ask.

    I am an old snart, but with my M-25 I can still do head shots @ 600 yds.

    Actually I do have a couple more questions. What's MOM, and why do you call them Trashfields? I can probably get a good guess on the trash field part but found many definitions for MOM.

    MOM = ‘minute of man’
    The ability to hit a man (torso) as opposed to a smaller bullseye on a target.

    And this is what counts. It must be done quickly and repeatability.
