    About November, I start thinking about moving, myself.

    Then I remember how our Winter weather keeps the riff-raff moving South and a warm, fuzzy feeling comes over me. -Al

    Nez, the Howa bottom metal isn't as wonky as the 700's factory BDL stuff, but be sure to take a good look at what happens when you attach the bottom metal. I normally bed it to the stock, also.
