This gun shoots good groups for 4-5 shots then begins to wander. I took some wood out of the stock away from the barrel and it seemed to help. Should I take more? Any other ideas?

That's a sure sign of a barrel that hasn't been stress relieved. As the barrel heats up, it begins to wander. I wouldn't worry about it, though. This is a military grade weapon and wasn't meant to be a tack driver. You will just frustrate yourself trying to make it one.
