Bedding almost allways helps accuracy but on a 770 it's anybody's guess.

There is nothing wrong with the concept but it requires Hand fitting all of the parts and this is
just not practical on a production rifle as inexpensive as this rifle.

I would buy the rifle to help your cousin out , bed it, and if it still doesent shoot sell it.

I wouldn't put any more money in it than the cost of bedding.


I am pretty sure I am close to agreeing with u on the quality of that rifle. When I got rid of it, I upgraded to a savage .308
