If it were a solid bar 1.250+, then I would agree with you, but it has uneven cutouts and lots of material removed in an uneven pattern which would definitely increase the odds of the action flexing or twisting. Remingtons definitely are not a stiff action by todays standards. There is nothing to lose, and only potential to gain by bedding the bases so why not?

I agree on the nothing to lose. I bed all my bases [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

But still a base AINT gonna bend an action -- your gonna have to prove that one to me with numbers.

Swiss cheesed action or not, I'm not believing that without some numbers to back it up.
