Maybe I missed it. Are you removing the forward pressure point found on Remingtons, Weatherby's (ie) ?

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 .

My bedded actions fit so tight that you have to work to get them out w/out screws. My Lonewolf pro job stocks are this way also. A sako trg 42 has 3 mounting screws

Thanks for all the advice, its primarily a sporting rifle and if necessary a long shot of 450 might be taken with it. I may try a bedding job to see for myself if it will give my Savage any accuracy.

Re: Bedding A Rifle By Pat Sheehy

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.
