Re: Is glass beding a Sendero worth the time and $$

I had a 300 RUM Sendero bedded last year and a trigger job. Before, it would average around 3/4 moa at 100 yards. After getting it done, it shoots 210 and 215 Bergers right at 1/2 moa sometimes better if I do my part. For my gun, it helped. I've often read that bedding a rifle will most likely help it, but never will hurt!

After a great many years of shooting experience I came to the conclusion that it simply isn't worth sending the first round down range with any rifle until it's been free floated and epoxy bedded and the action screws torqued.

In the end you will almost always end up doing so anyhow and at the price of ammo why waste it?

Yes check out youtube...many step by step videos there and if you have any sort of hands on skills its not that hard.... My thoughts were " it sure cant hurt" must say though those first few secs wonderin if its gonna pop out and not be glued to stock bout killed me haha....just follow insructions on your release agent to the T and youll be fine.

Re: Is glass beding a Sendero worth the time and $$

Every one that I have ever shot (3-4) eventually needed bedding. They were all 7mag or 300WM so there was some serious recoil issues. The first 100-150 rounds were all pretty accurate but overtime the Aluminum block began to loosen. Well lets just say the fit wasnt as tight. I could tell because the guns would begin to shoot two separate groups. Shots 1,3,5,7 ect were together and shots 2,4,6,8 were together. Usually about 1MOA apart.

Not a ton of experience but my 2cents
