Default What's the difference...

In a magnum contour barrel and regular contour? Magnum is not bull barrel or varmint barrel, is it?

I have a model 700 adl rifle that I want to swap out the stock to a Bell and Carlson mountain ti stock, but it's for a magnum contour barrel. B&C said itll fit. Will the barrel channel be too big?

Depending on barrel mfg roughly .025” difference at the muzzle. Basically it won’t be enough to notice.

This visual may or may not help giving you an idea of contours

I have done exactly what you are wanting to do many times you have a little extra free float in the barrel channel not overly noticeable
