    It can be tricky the first time and the second time and every damn time your bed a Ruger:mad: , sorry still get cranky about the last one I did.

    But for the most part if you do the prep work and take your time its not that hard.

    I will add a note though , I have seen several guns that were
    "Glass Bedded" shoot worse after the bedding than before due to the new bedding causeing stress on the action to stock fit.

    What is it your working on

    I am getting ready to do my first bedding job here in the next couple of weeks. I bought a book for Brownells I think called "Accurizing the Factory Rifle". It is what I have been using to do the job and seems pretty indepth. It is at least indepth enough for me to do the work and does not seem that difficult.

    I agree on the Ruger the angle lug makes it a little more difficult.I believe there is a good article about bedding on the 6mm BR site.
