    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]
