I have my great grandfathers Remington 760 in 30-06 and have read that it is suppose to be an accurate rifle, I have not experienced this yet but hope to soon. Mine has the forearm support plate that touches the barrel so it isn't a true free floating barrel as many describe, mine actually seems pretty tight but is not affixed to the barrel. While not a picture of my rifle this is what the support looks like. Can I remove this support piece or open up the part that touches the barrel so there is little to no pressure on the barrel? Generally I try to leave everything as is but I cannot seem to shoot better than 3" or 4" groups of a rest. I would be thrilled with 2" groups.
