Thank You. I am not an engineer or gunsmith, but seems the action bolts should be enlarged to the next size because of additional weight being added to them. I have always marveled how those skinny scope screws hold up .
I have an old 600 Rem. would be a good starter gun . The barrel is all ready free floated . I would also like to pillar bed it at that time. An inch an half to two inches is all the bedding material you recommend forward of the recoil lug ? Thanks for the info.
