this is exactly what happened, or well the end result, not sure the cause, but the effect is right.
I ground it all out last night, and with no bedding, it works fine, but needed bedding given the aluminum being ground some.
I will check on it today, see how it is, if not, I will probably just buy a rifle before the weekend, maybe a Weatherby Vanguard Series 2, something that will shoot factory pretty well.
this is my 'normal' hunting rifle, not long range, my long range gun is good.
I think single feeding from tree stands and such is just asking for trouble from a success standpoint if more than one shot is needed.
thanks for the replies
