    I've heard it said on this forum, Kirby I think, and its shown in 'bedding 101', - the tang on the savage floats.

    Let us know how she turns out(shoots thatis)....

    Jim, Roy and sniper2 both make good points. here's the thread Roy mentioned Bedding a Savage. And you can get away with to little bedding compound, just grind it out and try again. If you use to little release agent you got one hell of a problem. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
