Re: My new 300WSM, what do you think?

Bedded it tonight, the devcon is drying as we speak. I am a nervous wreck waiting to see how it turned out. Stressing about the kiwi polish i used as a release agent. I will know tomorrow. I free floated the barrel with the electrical tape as a shim to free float the barrel. Pray for me!!!

I need to go back and add some bedding material. Everything is super secure, but i did get some small air pockets. For as nervous as i was about it, i'm not entirely dissapointed with the results.

Sweet. That looks allot better. I would not sweat the air pockets as long as the foundation is secure. Now torque it all down and shoot it. As always let us know how she does. Good luck.

Looks to me that you have 200X the clearance you need. I only use $1 bills.

Re: My new 300WSM, what do you think?

Nice job with the devcon! I know that feeling when you are waiting for the epoxy to cure. Especially when you are not sure about the release agent. I had one that I had to put in a meat freezer to get it to separate. How much clearance do you have at the muzzle? What was the cure time on the devcon? I have a bedding job coming up and I might use it this time. I am going to pillar, and glass bed the action, and float the barrel. Nice job!
