Bedding is cool, sexy, and shooters can be a bit evangelical about it.

It's a casting of the receiver that is inert to weather. That's it. As long as the resin system used has minimal shrinkage, good resistance to chemicals, sufficient hardness and high shear/compressive strength, it will work. The hype about one particular brand over another doesn't make the bedding any better or worse, it's what is easiest/most affordable/available for the gunsmith to use.

I've bedded guns with $5.00 tubes of epoxy and I've used stuff that's over $100 bucks a pint. The rifle didn't notice the difference.

As I've preached and preached before. A properly done bedding job makes a great rifle exceptional, it makes a good gun great, and etc. . .It will NOT however polish a turd.

That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

I have not tried to polish one I guess because I prefer a mat finish on most every thing !

Re: Multi point glass bedding

I belive the answer is in these replies somewhere. Multi point bedding may just be a coined word that someone dreamed up to make it seem more complexed or special. I am 66 years old and as was so elliquently stated, crap is crap and any type of strong resin is going to work well. I am agoing to bed my VTR to just forward of the barrel lug and a glassed forearm rest to keep it stable. Will see what happens from there. Thanks Dave
