Is definitely forward of its previous position, as the small allen wrench needs to be angled toward the muzzle slightly to get in through to the barrel.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but i believe I recall a discussion regarding advancing the GC as being beneficial........

I haven't seen one in person yet.

Would it be correct to say that there is no contact between the stock and the GC in the EBR format?

In your experience, have the EBR's you have seen, been unitized and or shimmed?

EBR's don't have the barrel band, they have a crush washer in its place. My EBR stock has no contact with the GC.

Thanks from ColdWarPigGnR

Pic 1.
10 shot string (early December)
M1A loaded, GC shimmed
Federal American Eagle 168 grain OTM.
100 yards, bench.
Iron sights.

Pic 2.
5 shot string. (today)
M1A loaded w/Springfield Unitized GC.
Federal American Eagle 168 grain OTM.
100 yards, bench.
Iron sights.

Sorry, only took 5 shots to confirm the zero.
Had to save ammo to practice for the upcoming offhand milsurp league, and there is no way I'm showing anybody those targets......

What could I say the MOA of my rifle is?

looking at the way it was done,it leaves more room to adjust the lower tab, if needed,or adjust endplay with stock

Are you referring to the relationship between the lower tab of the front band, and the stock ferrule, in order to achieve the desired draw pressure?

I did shim the receiver to get better draw pressure.

By, "adjusting the lower tab", do you mean bending it?

Yes it adds a wee bit of dwell, however you have too double check and make sure the op-rod doesn't stop against the bolt roller.
