excellent second time at the range
well a couple of weeks ago now i completed my first action bedding it's not perfect i didn't put quite enough release agent on the action and a bit of bedding compound came out when i lifted the action out there is a ring around but 1/16" away from the front action screw and one spot on the tang, also i did not have quite enough compound in one small spot about a 1/4 of the way along the mag well on the left side i would say that the action is in contact for about 95-97% of the action for my first time i figure that that is okay especially once i went to the range for the second time. after waiting a week for the bedding to cure i headed to the range all exited to shoot my freshly bedded rifle then i shot it first group (all groups at 100m) 4", next 2", thrid and final group 1.5", then it dawned on me i have not clean my rifle in a very long time thinking back it must have been some were in the 60-80 round mark, so i took it home and decided that i would give my rifle one more chance after cleaning well it was the most i have ever removed from my bore and i could not belive i let it get that bad, so back to the range this time first group 4 shots 3/4" out side to out side well now i was exited and my next group showed it at 2". it was time to calm down with some 22lr fire. then i proceded to shot 3 3 shot groups in a row all under 1" and this is with a factory remington barrel so i was very pleased with my work.
i just thought i would share the story of my first bedding with you guys
there is always something to learn
