Re: Bedding something with a bedding block?
CJ, My 4 HS stocks all have them lines, like two pencil marks, and back by the tang the line is shaped like the tang, how much more contact do you need? I think thats how HS planned how the reciever is supposed to fit in their stocks, did you ever contact them and have them explain why they do it that way, you must be from that 'old school' where the reciever MUST make a 'prefect mirror' image of the stock, not so, you should see my 6mm shoot with no bedding,>1/4" at times and consistantly >3/8", and my sons 22-250 shoots damn good also, can't wait to try out my 223VS and my 708 s/s with an HS sporter stock I got on clearance from Midway. CJ, you should have sent them stocks back that have chips, voids etc.Brad will be glad to work with you,I had a problem with a thumbhole stock that canted the rifle to the right with a bipod attached and I didn't feel like I should have to correct it with my bipod, so I told him to make me an M24 stock instead (sand color), I like that stock better than my thunbhole, I think. To summarize, so far my rifles shoot like gangbusters with no bedding, and in another month I'll get to shoot my 223&708, I'll let you know how they do,Oh my God, there's no bedding in there, how can they possibly shoot?
