I have another question. Some tape all the recoil lug except the rear side and some tape just the bottom of the lug. What is the consensus on this (if there can be one) and how thick should the tape be. I'm planning to use plain masking tape. Thanks.
The application dictates the method.
For a hard use(Carrying, packing), I normally bed everything but the bottom of the recoil
lug to minimize any movement.
If it is a bench gun only, I bed only the back of the recoil lug.
A position target rifle is somewhere in between because of heat (Rapid fire) it has to
grow in two directions.
Just the way I do it .
