I think you are confused on what we are calling pinch point…its not a pressure point in the barrel channel (thats different all together)…The pinch point I'm referring too is the first few inches in front of the action…slide paper done the barrel of your rifle and you will see what I mean…it slightly varies on all the synthetic stocks from Varmint, CTR, and Lite barrels based on the cut…you will see variances between the various gun models.
Lite barrel guns seeming to have the tightest fit in this area (from experience), paper will stop in a different spot an the CTR and Varmint stocks…even the slightest change here will give you the messed up accuracy results you experienced. ONLY T3 “wood” stocks seem to be somewhat consistent in this area.
Sure…you can fit a “lite” barrel into any T3 stock but POI and harmonics will change from stock to stock based on this pinch point, thats why most of free float the barrels right to the action if the gun doesn't shoot and do load development after this mod. Its gives the best repeatable action seating coupled with a “metal” bottom plate.
Like you said, lets not beat a dead horse…its obvious I can't make understand what I'm trying to describe to you regarding your test..and what we have tested to be true on all other T3 rifles…
Let agree to disagree…but can other people with T3 experience chim in on what i'm describing…
