Re: Bedding a Browning A-bolt with BOSS

I guess I'll chime in here since my a-bolt stainless stalker lh boss has killed around twenty deer in the last ten years with a 165 hornady. I use 78.0 rl22, 165 hornady fb bullets, win brass, and a 215 set to 3.34" for a .020" jump to the lands. This rifle will toss .4 moa for three, .8moa for 5, and around 1 moa for ten as fast as you can pull the trigger with this load. The rifle wears a 6-24x40 b&l elite scope and is stock other than a lightened trigger. The rear action screw needs lock-tite on these rifles as it likes to loosen whenever it wants to. I also lock-tited the boss at ten turns out since it really made no difference in the loads I shoot and it also liked to loosen. I've got around 1200 rounds on the rifle and it barely shows any throat wear, but I don't cook the barrel either.
