Re: Bedding a Savage Stock

I have bedded a few savage stocks with good results, the key is to ruff it up pretty good and drill some 1/16 holes in the area your going to bed, make sure you float the tang. I use a couple layers of tape under the tang, get some modeling clay to fill in any holes around the magazine ( if this is a stagger feed action ) area. take your time and you'll be happy

Hope this helps

Thanks for the info guys! I've been reading some good older threads on this same subject (which I guess I should have searched for before starting this thread) and I'm gonna check out the Savage Shooters Forum.

Re: Bedding a Savage Stock

I've bedded a couple Savage stocks. It works pretty well, even tried the arrow shaft in the forend trick. The only problem I really had was the weight. I use Devcon and when you fill up the forend it gets really heavy. If you don't fill the forend it is too wimpy to stay rigid.
Of the three I have done I wound up replacing the stocks in the end.

Unfortunately you have a long action. The only aftermarket stock option is stockade, mcmillian, or manners. If you had a varmint barrel, you could go with the duramaxx stock, which is what I did, and couldn't be happier.
