Re: Using marine tex for bedding scope base?
I really hope I just did this right! As it was only my second base to bed! I just finished bedding it an hour ago. I found which side fit best(which for me was the rear of the base) put on the epoxy, then barely snugged up the screws on the back. I just engaged the front screws, without any pressure on the base.
The first base I did seemed to fit much better, I couldn't figure which was best so I put on the epoxy then just engaged the screws, then laid a lapping bar in the rings with a small sand bag on it.
