Anyone......I have a Ruger 77 .22Mag. that I have rebarreled with a Match Grade Varmint taper. I am noticing a "loose fit" at the receiver, with very minor wobble. (the factory barrel was the same way) Will this contribute to accuracy problems? I experimented a little, and found that I could "shim out" the play with a narrow strip of cellophane between the barrel and receiver. Could this be helpful, or is the Ruger barrel attachment system built with this wobble in mind? Also, I plan to glass bed the recoil lug, and float the barrel. Do I need to run the glass down the barrel channel for a short length, or leave it floating all the way back to the recoil lug? Thanks for all replies......."Ridge"
