    The effect of LOP.

    What effects can the wrong LOP have on your shooting ability? I believe that my rifle has a LOP that is substantially too short. What problems can arise from the LOP not being correct?

    A shorter lpo is eaaser to deal with than a londer one. The main problem I can see with a short lop is that you may not put your cheek in the same spot every time, thus eye relief is diffrent thus affecting your groups a bit. For hunting applications this is irrelevant unless shooting prarie dogs at 500 maters, but the nice thing is if you bulk up in the winter for hunting the lop can be just right.

    A longer lop can make it so you do not get close enough to the scope ie eye relief, but also makes it difficult to hold the rifle correctly and be steady with it.

    Confused yet?

    I believe stockade stocks could put a adjustable spacer system on your stock for a little cash. And without messing up the paint job or anything else.

    Thats a pretty inexpensive adjustable lop mod. Would someone care to try this out and post a diy procedure before I butcher my stock again? :lol:
