Well, what kind of groups does it shoot?

Besides being ugly, tell us what all is wrong with the bedding job...start at recoil lug and work your way back to the tang.

Was the duct tape still in place...wow, LOL!

Re: Don't bed like this.

The strange v shaped inletting in the forend channel is stupid .
No bedding found it's way to fill any of that.
There seems to be two bedding materials . epoxy at the front blob and the rest looks like a Polyester car bog.
The recoil lug area is a nightmare of unformed bedding . Can't tell if any proper relief was allowed in the right places .
To me it looks like two different bedding attempts the first looked somewhat better .
The way to do it right is tape the barrel to get the correct action height and remove the whole lot and start again . Glue in some pillars and then bed on that .
A turd is a turd no matter how you describe it .

Just goes to show that gunsmiths are being overly critical when they bed rifles. Just grab your favorite color of duct tape and give her h#ll! I wonder if duct tape can be used instead of cerakote also?

Got the 'duck' tape. Was it lubed with WD-40?


Is that a Hart barrel on it?

I did see one other use of Duct Tape (Wish I had taken a picture).
The Duct Tape was wrapped all the way around the action to hold it in the stock (He said he lost
the action screws while cleaning it and wanted to hunt so he taped it.

The interesting thing was that it was over a year old. (Good Duct Tape). and on a 7mm Mag
Vanguard.
