Default Sorting Out My Drill Rifle

I brought back a 1903A3 drill rifle with a NOS '44 2 groove barrel installed by Chuck in Denver. The stock is a scant that has 2 cracks, one on each side of the receiver that have been repaired but it has plenty of character. I have not been able to get it to hold a decent group. I finally realized that the receiver was not sitting on the stock behind the recail lug at all, all the contact was directly on the front of trigger guard. I bedded the flat behind the recoil lug and "bedded" the front of the trigger guard just behind the screw ferrule to prevent it crushing into the wood. I hope this solves the grouping issue. There is the distinct possibility that I am not just that good of a shot.
