I liken the Barrett to a .300 Win Mag. The M-21 has been around for a long time and it is still used by the USMC. The M-14 is a beautiful weapon, I have a Armscorp National Match one and love to shoot it, though it is a bear to shoulder that recoil and steel baseplate for someone like me with boney shoulders. Close the spindle valve and it is for sure a tack driver. Mine only has the medium weight NM barrel too, the M-21 has the heavy weight NM barrel.

I also have a Remington 700 BDL that I have had quite a bit of work done on to make it emulate a M-24; B&C composite stock, glassed bed, trigger dropped to 2 lbs, tactical black coating on all the metal, etc. No length of pull adjustment though, not really needed. I have a Pentax Lightseeker II 6-24x44 scope on it with a mildot reticle, it's a beauty. It has the original stock barrel on it and I would not swap it out for a heavy barrel for anything. My best 3 round group at 100 yds is 0.26" ctc. Was having a great day that day though, have not been able to duplicate it.

Sounds like you need one of these:

...and yes, they are as uncomfortable as they look. ;) Helps when using the sling too.
