Awhile back I had a nice 6.5x47 Lapua built, and I haven’t been too impressed with it so far. It’s been a solid MOA shooter, but that’s about it. The rifle was assembled by a reputable gunsmith and I don’t expect that the accuracy issue lies with the quality of the components. However, I ended up bedding the stock myself, and that’s got me wondering if I should put in any effort to either tweak or re-do it. As far as the bedding goes, the rear tang and sides of the action are nicely bedded. However, the front of the recoil lug, where the material just sort of oozed forward, is uneven. Part of the bedding might have gone 1” ahead of the lug and another part is only ¼” ahead. I’m curious if either removing this section all together and free floating the barrel, or removing this section and setting up a way to bed it consistently 1” forward of the recoil lug would be worthwhile or not? Any thoughts out there?
