Re: Skim bedding an aluminum bedding block.
It's a 7mm STW. I have a torque wrench and the specs call for 65 in. lb. In a nutshell, the rifle went back twice because the point of impact would shift and the group size might be 1/4 moa one time and 2 moa the next. I discovered a pressure spot about 1.5 inches ahead of the recoil lug so I sanded it out and the gun is now giving me consistent grouping, but I would like to tighten it up. When I put the stock in the bedding block and run the screws in just tight enough to hold, I can see daylight around one side of the receiver. Of course the daylight goes away when I torque the screws, but obviously the fit could be improved.
It really seems like I saw a post, including photographs, on skim bedding the Bell and Carlson type stocks on this forum about 6 months ago. Can anyone help me locate the thread?
