Another thread got me thinking again (I know.....bad idea), but anyway, here goes. I've heard more times than I can count, that switching from one type/style/brand/whatever rifle stock to another, will affect the accuracy of the rifle. How so? In my feeble 40 year old mind, it isn't physically possible. I have a Savage 10FP, pre-accutrigger, with the factory synthetic stock. I can hit a 4" target at damn close to 400 yards with so-so optics (crappy optics according to most). If the above statement is true, when I change stocks, I will need to readjust the zero on my scope. But my question is this: the scope is attached to the receiver, not the stock. How will changing the stock affect ANYTHING other than how the rifle feels in my hands? Please enlighten me.
