Glass bedding

Glass bedding is not only "worth it", it is absolutely essential for someone deciding to participate in what this site is all about.

Being a gunmaker specializing in 1000 yard competitive and "ludicrous" range hunting rifles, I can personally vouch for the necessity of bedding.

All the reasons listed in previous posts are valid so I'll end up being redundant with what I'd have to contribute.

Just know that not all bedding jobs are created equal and you get what you pay for when it comes to stock work.

If you have any doubts, take it to someone who understands that long range bolt guns require attention to detail. Reputations and track records mean a lot here.

I don't claim to be the end all source of knowledge, but I can tell you that rifles I've built have claimed world championships, "real" trigger time in Iraq, and kills as far as 2552 yards on prairie dogs in Wyoming.

I don't know everything, but I like to think I do know what works.

Hope this helped in some way.

Nice job and that is the way I do all my gun....but I also like to bed under the barrel the lengh of the chamber this is what I like to do not for every one ,but I think it helps, just me.I only use the brownells steel bedding,again just me.Tim
PS Long Ranger you are right on the money with your trial run with the two stocks.....I know you will know this but if you look at the unbedded stock you will see where the action rides in the block and leaves two lines (or marks) on the bedding block. So when ever I had a HS stock I would do the same thing with it ....a skim coat and it does make a differents. Tim
