Re: Bedding a 700 LSS laminated stock?

Varmit Hunter, Yes mine had the pressure ridge in the front of the forend. I shot it before and after with quite a few different loads. Average pre-bedding was about 1.5 to 2" @ 100 yards after free float and bedding most loads come in at about 1.25" for 5 shots @ 100". None would do better than 1". After closer inspection I found the bores center at the muzzle was .005" out of center. I recrowned the barrel after dialing in the bore. No difference it's still an 1.25" rifle. After June it will be a 300 RUM.

Yes I lightly roughed up the original finish, and then wipe the stock with a rag and some acetone. This will remove any residue and hand oil. Also remove or tape off the butt plate.
