    There should be a thrust block in the stock that is designed to absorb the recoil via a vertical plate which is part of the barrel/action assembly. I suggest you shim, with thin metal shim-stock, any gap which may (probably does) exist between the wood thrust block and the plate.
    Death to every foe and traitor and hurrah, my boys, for freedom !

    My oldest son's grandmother gave him a Savage 340 back in the late '80's. It wasn't a new rifle, but it was in excellent condition. We went to Numrich arms to get a magazine for it and were surprised to see that if the spring was inserted one way it was for a .225 I believe, and the other way was for a 30/30. Anyway, the magazine was a Savage stamped product and he still has it and the rifle. He had a gunsmith put a scope mount and scope on the rifle and it shoots very well, is accurate and he won't part with it for love nor money......

    Did I ever mention that I hate to trim brass?

    Yep, mine has the factory side saddle stamped scope mount, as well as a factory scope!
