I've always been curious about the accuracy of any rifle when the barrel was constrained by a metal shroud or jacket completely surrounding it. Would seem to negate a lot of careful stock bedding.

From what I've read, the jacketed barrels are quite accurate. The jacket and air space isolate the barrel from the pressure and variables of a swelling & shrinking wood stock.

The barrel is free to expand, as it heats, and contract, as it cools, through the collar at the front of the jacket.

The system is almost like a free-floated barrel.

Always drives me crazy when I see pretty guns displayed on or against cement, brick, gravel or stone walls. Kinda like when they do the sword bend test on Forged in Fire. One little bump and a major oops. Btw, good looking rifle.

The clock of communism has stopped striking. But its concrete building has not yet come crashing down. For that reason, instead of freeing ourselves, we must try to save ourselves from being crushed by its rubble.
