JE. Do you know of any book with reference to what different actions "like"? I don't smith commercially (want to) so I don't have the experience or means to experiment personally. I know savage likes the tang floating and Remington fully bedded. Any other info out there?
Each action responds differently to changes and each smith has his opinion as to what to do
in order to make them shoot. That is the reason that some smiths specialize in a certain action.
In general I find the 700 Remington to be the least finicky and it responds to any or all accurizing
I do a lot of Weatherby Mark 5s and they do well with the same basic accurizing but normally
require a different Bedding requirement. The Winchesters and Mauser are about the same.
As you stated the Savage require different bedding, head spacing and truing to bring them into
there own (They can be made to shoot very well).
The only action I have trouble with is the M77 Ruger. Every now and then I have trouble figuring
out how to get them under 1/2 MOA. Some Smiths Have figured them out and do well. The angled
recoil lug is the main problem and applies some tricky dynamics's to the action.
