Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

The 1917 is one of my favorite bolt actions, I prefer it over the 1903

Was at the range this weekend with my future son in law. I had my Winchester M1917 and he had his 1903. The '17 outshot the '03 with both of us behind each trigger. I have to admit that the '03 kicked like a mule compared to the '17 using my reloads in both. That extra barrel and weight really does calm it down some.

If the o3s recoil gets bothersome , put lead in the buttstock. My Garand was getting away from me so i put twenty-seven .58 caliber round balls in it,
Only downside was the lead powered some.
