Bedding??

I have a Savage 110FCP w/HS Precision stock in 338LM. My question is on bedding the action, is it a PITA to do yourself or should I have a Smith do it? I noticed the other day after firing some rounds that it was a bit loose in the stock so I tightened everything down. i have not fired it since doing so. Thanks.

Here is one of four videos I just watched to find out how I could bed my sporterized Springfield 03;, which the bedding compound crumbled...

1. Bedding a rifle with MatchGrade bedding compound - YouTube

...looks like a PITA to me... I hope I can get my action out of my stock! :o

Every time I do one, it gets easier. It should not be too bad with that stock as HS usually has a bedding block and pillars. So, you're mostly just skim bedding.

Re: Bedding??

Be sure to cut reliefs in the v block to let the bedding adhere. It's easy with a dremel tool or use a mill if you have access. Not difficult to do bedding just takes time to do it.

Re: Bedding??

Epoxy doesn't want to stick to synthetic stocks very well, so I usually drill a bunch of holes at odd angles and start with Acraglas; it's real runny and will fill all of the voids.
Good luck!
