    I picked up a used blr mid 90 in 308 a while back

    It had good accuracy etc. The problem was no sling attchemnt in front so I pulled off the forearm and drilled it and put on a sling swivel stud.

    After that the accuracy sucked like 2 to three inch groups at 50 yards. Not 100 but 50.

    The forearm was on very tight and I had to really fight it to get it off after removing the screw. Does anyone have and photos on bedding one of these? Any other advice?

    If it is a model that doesn't have a barrel band, the swivel screw may be too long and is contacting the barrel. That can really affect the accuracy!

    I made sure the uncle mikes screw I drilled into did not go all the way through. It does NOT have the forearm band. However you got me to thinking. I wonder if the regular screw holding on the forarm is touching? Something to look at. Thanks.

    Try a trick that I've used on the Savage 99. Put a neoprene o-ring between forearm and barrel around the forend screw and just snug it. I also find it best to have the front rest as close to the receiver as possible.
