Sendero owners

I've got a wonderful sendero ssf in 300 rum. I've heard that bedding the stock will improve accuracy. Since there are aluminum pillars/chassis, do you grind it out as if it were wood, or do you just float the action and/or floorplate magbox area? Any one who has done this please respond with results. Greatly appreciated.

    Relax things will break loose.

    Kirby Allen posted the complete process several months ago. I did a search but didn't come up with it on the first try. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Then I gave up. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    I'm not quite 100% sure as I don't know if the Sendero's pillars are concave or flat. If they are concave the action should be resting on them. If they are flat I'd go to Midway/Sinclair/Brownells etc and get a kit and follow the instructions.

    I'll be pillar bedding my old clunker this winter I'll do what I stated above.

    Also go here: Pillar Bedding by Darrell Holland I've heard that he knows a bit about the subject. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The bedding block is concave. I skim bedded my vsf which has the same hs bedding block. There is a good post I believe it is called basics of bedding and other stuff. It significantly improved the accuracy of my gun. Just found the post. This is pretty much what I followed. I didn't grind any of the metal, but I did do some inletting on the nonmetal areas to give the bedding a better hold into the stock. Basics of Bedding

    If you are intending on doing it yourself, here is a link.

    Download the powerpoint presentation. I haven't looked at it but it most probably has some pointers.

    I would second what 7Rumloader said. Kirby skim bedded a
    Sendero for me with great results. With the reasonable fee compared to the overall investment, to me it makes sense.
