Accustock bedding?

I just bought a savage with the accustock. What's the feeling on bedding it? Is the aluminum block enough or what???

Re: Accustock bedding?

I have never shot one but what I would do before I DID anything to it is to shoot it and see how the groups are. If its already acceptable groups for you, then I wouldn't do anything to it. A lot of people make the mistake of modifying a gun before even shooting it and to find out that it would shoot better like it was.

If its not to you liking then, you can modify it like bedding the action or tuning the trigger, etc.

I've got a Savage with accustock, shoots well under 1 moa, often groups between .25 and .75 moa with factory lead tipped hunting ammo!

Give it a chance, see if you like it.

Re: Accustock bedding?

Honeestly I would be terrified I was going to mess something up! My 111LRH will average just over .5" at 200 yards and I am not sure some of that isn't my shooting. To me usually, an aluminum bedding block will give all of the accuracy I could ask for from the barrel. I can't imagine bedding the action would add a whole lot more to the rigidity. But if it is already shooting in the .2s-.3s at 100 with a sporter weight barrel most would be in good shape short of match shooting. If you decide to do it, I will certainly be interested in seeing the results.
