TRG-S 338 LM Bedding Fix Report

Well, I had to re-do the TRG-S again.

The forend is so flexible, bipod shooting wasnīt still happening when the surprisingly hot summer weather came last week. Now I extended the hard epoxy bedding a tad further in front of the receiver and made so much room for the barrel that itīs getting pretty thin...



But now it works with bipod. Recoil also goes right upwards when I do my part. This is my first target after the job, the two separate holes are the last ones from a 75 meter bench where I was adjusting the scope and generally checking things. Then I ran to the car,mounted the Harris and fired three rounds from cartop, 100 meters. Hornady 225 SST, VV N560 , 3100 fps.





That was about one week ago. Since then I have fired 3 to 20 rounds every day and now the beast actually stays there, cold or hot barrel - or weather. This stock has been a real pain but careful pillar bedding (I actually changed the receiver mounting angle a bit) and lots of room for the barrel did the trick.


MOOSE BEWARE!

    Good to hear from you again and glad you made it through the winter [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

    Looks like you finally got the TRG-S straightened out, thats good news too.

    Nice pup, prehensile tail too! My parents had several Elk Hounds when I was growing up at home. Nice dogs but we didn't use them for any work or labor other than to get rid of food scraps.

    ktg,
    Is that a McMillan A5 for a M70 with the new bottom metal from McMillan? I talked with Dick Davis and might have him do one for mine. Also, what is the longest cartridge OAL that will fit in the magazine?
    TIA,
    Wayne

    Itīs a standard Sako factory brake. I am waiting for a suppressor to replace the brake though.

    KTG, please tell us more about your rig.
