New wood was made over sized. You will need sharp chisels and files to fit it.

There is a lot more to stocking up a Lee than just dropping in the action and doing up the bands.

The info is out there. Do a search on Peter Laidler. An ex-MOD armourer, he has written a great deal on this and gives very good instructions.

Exactly. I had the same problem with a new set of SMLE handguards.
