Re: Bedding a Savage
I did one rifle three different ways and geargrinders way was the most accurate and consistent. Everything was under under MOA but the final one has yielded a very reliable .750 inch group at 200yrds and will do it from first to however many I shoot, the other ways were real sensitive to torque and seems finicky.
I set one up for free floating the tang by taping it up like I do the barrel to get everything in the spot I wanted and I watched and played with an indicator and found that it did not take hardly any pressure on the action when squeezing it all down and it would spring back, so I went to no spacer of any kind on the tang and use three points on the barrel to get the action where I wanted it and I only squeeze on the barrel and I get very stress free beading on my Savages. I haven't done hundreds yet but for now that what I do, for what it's worth.
