I know. He needs to start over from square one and stick to basics. Hopefully the group tightens up then.

I had a 308 T3 that had speed bumps. I never did a thing to it and it shot ridiculously well as do all T3's. Current 30-06 T3x I am afraid to even clean it, scary accurate.

Man you are making it hard not to buy a LH Tikka. Great load you have there.

The two little bumps at the end of the stock that apply slight upward pressure on the barrel.

In theory and in practice, they calm a thin barrel down by dampening the harmonics (or the whip) as the bullet travels down the barrel.

Some people report better accuracy by removing them and free floating the barrel (no parts touching the stock forward of the barrel shank).

I have 3 T3 Lites, all with intact speed bumps. The worst is a .308 that shoots 0.8" to 1.0" at 100 yards. I'm not messing with them, but I have a question for you guys that do.

With the speed bumps removed, can you squeeze the barrel and forearm tip and produce contact? One of Mule Deer's observations is if you can get contact, more material must be removed.


A nation whose “elite” has taken it from putting men on the Moon to putting men in women’s lavatories has no substantive claim to its status.

I have 3 Tikka's and I can run a dollar between the barrel and stock but they are T3's.

THANK YOU ON THE SPEED BUMPS. I have a guy with a Savage gun with a wimpy stock in 22-250 and it would not shoot worth a poop. I watched him shoot for a while and pulled out a business card and kept folding it and putting it between the forend and the barrel till we had good contact. MAJICK !! it went to shooting 1" groups. I am sure if he had it bedded it would shoot better than that too. The stock was hitting the barrel when he would fire the gun. Have had this happen some but usually free float is the fixer.

The rattle can looks good. I'm thinking about a Wildcat stock for mine, it may well end up rattlecanned similar to your factory rig... wink
