I had an early R1 in 30-06 with the 20 inch barrel, the gun functioned perfectly but was inconsistent in its Point of Impact. When disassembled for cleaning and reassembled it would shoot 9-10 inches off. The tightness of the external foreend screw that held the wood fore end on also effected POI. I could walk the bullets up the target by tightning the fore end. I sold it but liked the guns handling over a BAR. Have there been any internal changes in the last two years that would warrent me trying another one in .308?
