Re: Bedding in front of recoil lug

On Mausers, I bed the first inch of barrel in front of the receiver.

I pillar bed the rear, but seldom bother with the wide short pillar in the front.

Have you noticed how little good bedding improves accuracy, but how much bad bedding can hurt accuracy?

If the point of impact changes with changes in action screw torque, chisel the glass out of there and start over. This can be checked with a bore sighter.

Actually I have never seen a bedding job that hurt the accuracy only change the harmonics
and change the POI.

However good bedding is allways an improvement to accuracy If done right and improves
consistency and makes it easier to load for.

A poor bedding job is normally just that "A poor bedding job".
