    Thank you to all who posted on my question.
    I even put my brother to work - he annealed the brass.

    It will have to do for now. The proof is on the range, will see how it shoots.

    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.

    If you do the dial indicator test and it's moves around a bit more than you'd like, remove the bottom metal and try it. -Al
