What's everyone opinion on bedding material? Also....when I do get my Sendero SFII should it will have the H-S stock on it.....should I bed it?

To resumarize.....skim bedding and regular bedding are the same right? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I'll be bedding mine this winter - I used Brownells "Steel bed". I'll do the trigger at the same time.

Re: Skim Bedding

Coues,
Yes it'll have the HS Precisoin stock. Lots of good bedding compounds. Hard to go wrong really.

Wondering if you talked to Norm at Van Waggennens. I should've warned you he's not the friendliest chap. But he always has the best prices.

Kind of like beer. Seems awfully bitter at first. Then you start to like him.

I've always used Acraglass but from what I've read Devcon Putty is the way to go. Less mess, easier to work with and dries harder than concrete.

Re: Skim Bedding

Good question.
The first time I heard the term Skim bedding
was in relation to a stock that had an alumnium
bedding block installed.

Bedding compound was applied to all the surfaces
and then the action was brough in contact with the bedding
block.

when removed you can still see the contact points
on the bedding block and the position of the action
has not changed.

On a sendero stock the aluminum bedding block has a
round groove for the action that is machined smaller
than the diameterof the action. this makes the action
touch the top edges of the block and acts like a
V block.

By skim bedding you prevent spreading the bedding block
by over tightening.

As far as pillars go, like anything else if they are not
installed right they may have a bad effect on accuracey

The bedding screws should never touch the inside of the
pillar only the head or floor plate can touch.This
prevents them from becoming recoil lugs.


Normal bedding practice on raw stock inleting requires
removal of more material to thicken the bedding for
more strengh and to align the action with the barrel
channel.

I hope this answers your questions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
