The Bolt Shroud

How does the bolt shroud affect accuracy with a bolt action ? I just read that replacing it with one from pacific tool and guage increases accuracy a whole lot . I don't understand WHY.
Would someone who knows help me with this . What about " lapping your scope rings" whats that all about ? The article was on accurizing your rifle .
Did any one have a great year hunting this year ? What did you get and what rifle did you use?

Scope rings...

I'm not sure about the bolt shroud, unless you mean to add rigidity by adding one with less metal removed. Thicker was and more rigidity are supposed to improve the accuracy. As for the scope rings, lapping is supposed to remove any irregularities that might prevent them from being 100% concentric and preventing good alignment or allowing the scope to shift slightly. I've always done it as a matter-of-course.

Bolt shroud

Some are adjustable to take up any Bolt the space allowing Bolt Rock....
When you draw your bolt back and it can tip up and down or back and forth...

Which can actually allow you to fine tune your trigger to be smoother and lighter.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
