Re: New Remington bedding question

new member,currently asking advice and learning from the experts here,but i have removed the pinch on 5 700 rem's so far,all with much better results!i cant figure why they still do it? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img] tru oil seals the wound well.while you're at it,get the trigger tuned to your liking.my 30-06 grouped 6" difference from summer to winter up and down @ 100yds,they must want you to burn more ammo,which is good!

Re: New Remington bedding question

Lablover,
If you decide that you may not want the laminate stock give me shout.
I personally would take a Laminate stock over a syn. for hunting. I like the warmth of wood much better and when bedded properly they will hold their "zero" rather well.

Re: New Remington bedding question

I have the VLS in .223 and absolutely love it. To obtain best accuracy, I did free float the barrel on mine and bed the action using Accra-glass. Shoots wonderfully! I also prefer the laminated over the sythetics. I know they perform well, I just hate the feel of them.

Gents

I greatly appreciate the help. I think I will sling some rounds down range then if it performs like poop...I'll have it bedded. I almost think I can tackle the job myself [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
