Thanks for that. I think this does cause me some problems.
Again due to the lack of knee height, the hamster on my 77 FT stock is set low. This gives a great depth from barrel to contact with front hand. The front hand has to sit on the front of the lowered hamster. I'm sure the extra height of barrel to contact adds more lateral movement of the barrel as it basically rotates around that front hand contact point. Scope mounts are already high. So if I was to reduce hamster depth the scope mounts would be step ladders.
