Ian, My sons Classic Compact had the blob of "hot glue" bedding like you mentioned.

My 700 ADL 300wm synthetic had nothing what so ever though. Top that with the fact that the mag box contacted before the recoil lug did too. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Winchester M-70 Coyote - Anybody Shooting One

I have got a Coyote in 300 WSM. Just had it pillar bedded and trigger worked. Pick it up from the gunsmith later this week. then off to work up some loads and see what it will do. Start with h4350 and 190 JLKs. Goint to use as carry LR rifle and Factory Class in 1000 yard competition.

Will let know what it does.

Re: Winchester M-70 Coyote - Anybody Shooting One

I just traded my 3rd Coyote in 22-250... I keep buying them bedding them and end up trading them on somthing custom... ( bad habit ) EVERYONE I had needed bedded.. I just bedded the tang area and the recoil lug area to about 1 inch in front.. they all shot itty bitty groups with the right load after this... You need to lighten the trigger as well..

Check the forend and MAKE SURE that there is sufficient room all the way down the barrel.. the last 2 I had needed smoothed up and a little wood taken out... then I refinished and bedded it...

Back40sniper .. has this problem with his. if he is stringing verticle!!

I'd buy another if the price were right... :-) Just a really fun rifle to have!!!

ALMOST FORGOT.. with winchester's tighten the front a rear recoil lugs to 65 inch lbs. then just SNUG the middle one....if you tighten the middle one you will touque the action... bad thing, very bad thing....

What powder and how much did you use with the Nosler 180's..

Regards,
Dan
