Help with Bedding Actions.....

I've got several rifles I'd like to have the actions bedded on. 3 Rugers and 2 Weatherby MK5 Accumarks. Being that I have several I'd like to have done and will have more in the future, I thought maybe I'd learn to do it myself.

Is it very hard to do?
Can you really mess anything up beyond fixing?
Anybody have any good instructions/info/suggestions on doing this with these rifles? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys.

Re: Help with Bedding Actions.....

the search button is your friend. . .

Look under my screen name or my old one, "nesikachad" and you'll get quite a bit on how I do it.

Good luck.

Take a look here:

Stress-Free Pillar Bedding

Here:

Botched Bedding Jobs: How to Spot Common Mistakes

and here:

Bedding Project - Sniper's Hide Forums

as well as with Ernie here:
Trigger Springs|Aluminum Pillar|Pillar Bedding|Gunsmithing
and Ernie here:
Trigger Springs|Aluminum Pillar|Pillar Bedding|Gunsmithing

Reading these links will help you figure it out and avoid problems.

I just received the DVD from Richard (first link) a couple of weeks ago and am about halfway through watching it. I, too, have a few Weatherbys and a Remington Sendero to do and plan on using Ernie's trigger springs and Accu-Risers when I bed them.

Re: Help with Bedding Actions.....

Also....should I pillar bed while I'm doing it? I found Callahan Pillar bedding columns at Midway for the Rugers. I believe the Accumark has an aluminum bedding block?
