Pre-64 barrel screwa

Recommended Posts

I have the good fortune to be the owner of a Winchester mdl 70 (pre 64) 30.06. It is a fine hunting rifle and, with factory loads (168 gr Win Supreme) it holds 1.25" groups at 100 yds and, before you ask, this is without the barrel screw installed. So here comes my question. Is this "extra" screw a reflection of the fad of the time or did/does it help with rifles that a 3" inch stringers? Are there any articles dealing with this(I've looked but not worn my fingers out looking) ?
