Not mentioned in this discussion that I can see is that most throughbolt stocked guns can be adjusted for cast by reinleting the head of the stock.

I had this done to a K80 by the Krieghoff shop about 30 years ago. They increased cast off @ the heel by 1/4" & fit to the head of the stock & tang remained perfect. You could see that they used some epoxy bedding internally w/the stock removed.

I shot that gun for a long time & never had any issues with the work & it wasn't expensive to have done. I'm sure there are other gunsmiths out there that can do this for you. Michael Yardley mentions this method of adjusting cast in his book "Gunfitting".

Friend had the same issue a couple years ago. I suggested he build it up and see how much it moved in the wrong direction. What he found out was that when he built it up 1/4" it moved about three to four inches. So he looked at shaving it down 1/4" and decided not to do it. It would have cupped it out. The height was fine and he might even had ended up with a lower comb he figured. Had it been too high he might have tried it. So down the road that gun went but at least it was unmolested. Too many are not.

Thanks for the ideas gentlemen. I took the stock off and there is not much material there to cup the stock much. That's not my first choice, though I did it when Dockwiller made me a stock for my trap gun in the late eightes at Redlands. I would shoot it and walk back to the shop and he'd take a little off. We did this until it was perfect,... and it still is. The idea of inleting the head of the stock for cast is intriguing. With the scalloping on the receiver it would take some skill to look right. I have two of these that shoot in the same place so my costs are doubled. The grain on the other is straighter and bending may not be as much of an issue. Not so much in a hurry now. I screwd up my left shoulder Friday hooking up the gooseneck horse trailer. Hopefully not to bad, but enough to get an MRI.
