Re: Remington glass bed ?

I have had the best results on remington and other
round type actions with full bedding the action and
recoil lug (except the bottom of the lug)

Use some 1/16in foam tape stuck to the bottom and
trim to match lug.

full float the barrel unless it is a very lite taper
(you may need some tip pressure)

After the bedding has cured remove barreled action
from stock and then remove the tape.

This appears to be very stable under all typs of shooting
and allows the recoil lug to grow with out moving the action.

HOPE THIS HELPs

DOC

As you fire heat causes the barrel and the action to grow.

The barrel grows in length and diameter,if the barrel is floated no problem.

The action does the same but if the recoil lug touches
the bottom its radius being much larger grows more and
pushes up on the action causing it to bow, changing bedding
screw tension and point of aim.

DAVE

It only takes a few thousandth of an inch to affect
the accuracy.

If you want to test this,put your rifle in the sun and
allow it to heat up

Then torque your rifle to 65 inch pounds.

next place it in the freezer after 4 or 5 hours take it out and check the torque, if you are metal to metal bedded it will be less.

Another example is head space, on military weapons head
space is .004 to .008 as the weapon heats up it will still go into battery.

So thanks for the comment maybe I should have explained
it better. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
