Re: Bedded stock

Rem700,

It is a Boyd's stock. I bought the pillars from Midway. I cut them down a little before I installed them and then cut them flush when I was done with my counterbore bit. I bedded about 1 inch of the barrell in front of the action.

Re: Bedded stock

I have wondered which is stronger, aluminum or laminated wood. Any Engineers here? Can't be too much difference. I 'm curious which is better, or is there? Seems aluminum would be more temperature sensitive , but the distance is small it could hardly make a difference. What glass did you use? I heared some negative about Accuglass(sp) - loosens over time or temperature? ? Don't think Brownels would sell it , if it were not a top rated product.

You'll need that recoil pad if you don't have a brake on it, my boyd's stock's butt pad was hard as a rock! My shoulder is telling me I need one as well.

Re: Bedded stock

I finally loaded some rounds. I am trying the Berger 180 grain bullets with H1000 powder. I have 3 rounds each starting at 63.5 grains and going up to 68.0 grains. I hope I find a good load tomorrow when I go shoot it. I will report back with results.

Re: Bedded stock

I am pretty happy with the results. The best group I got was 1/2" at 100 yards with 66.5 grains of H1000 and the bullet seated .050 off the lands. I had to seat them that deep so they would fit in the magazine.
