Bell and Carlson Medalist

Hi everybody!

I was wondering about the stocks with the aluminum bedding (particularly the B&C Medalist). Would that mean no other type of bedding would be required? Is this type of bedding not as good as a Devcon type bedding?

I would also like to say that I have been lurking here for a month and WOW, what a great bunch of forums! I have learned so much soaking in ALL this information. It gets a little confusing at times. I do appreciate all the information and all those who share it

Thanks,
Ed

Re: Bell and Carlson Medalist

I just skim bedded a Savage LRPV (the Devcon 10110 is curing as I type this) that came from the factory in an HS-Precision Kevlar stock with aluminum bedding block. In my opinion the aluminum bedding block is better than most factory rifles with wood stocks loose metal pillars, but it will still benefit from epoxy bedding to make it fit stress free.

Fitch,
Could you post a couple of pictures? I would like to see how you did it.

Thanks

Ed, I recently skim bedded a couple of Sendero HS stocks and will post the pics and story in about a week. I want to shoot them first. I might post you a couple of pics here in a day or so.

Thank you Mark,
I'm just having trouble visualizing how it works not ever actually seeing aluminum bedding in a stock or even aluminum bedding with epoxy bedding. I'm trying to get mentally prepared before committing to buying a stock.

Thanks,
Ed

Re: Bell and Carlson Medalist

This is what the bedding block in my Savage LRPV looked like from the factory:



This is what it looks like after I skim bedded it with Devcon 10110.

Thanks Fitch!
I see now! I halfway expected to see a line of aluminum at the apex of the curve where the chamber would meet the aluminum . I guess the aluminum block doesn't touch. Wouldn't just aluminum pillars do just as good?
