Re: Bedding problem
I have used a block of wood that just fits into the mag well with the bottom metal removed. You can whack it with a hammer and you will be directing the force straight up on the bottom of the action as opposed to hitting the barrel and applying the force at an angle. Less chance of damaging the bedding around the recoil lug in my opinion, plus the wood won't hurt the steel action.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
