Reguardless of if his wildcat cartridges are "cutting edge" or not, he is still a very knowledgeable rifle builder that has a very successful business, because of the level of quality he produces. Far different from making a few original designs. However, that is neither here nor there. Your comment about using a different compound for bedding the rings is something I will look in to, better grip is always a good thing for this, and I want the best I can get, and changing the ring bedding compound was not something I had considered.Learn and keep an open mind? There’s is no new information being shared here. Nothing new to me about bedding scope rings or how to pin a base or drill and tap for bigger screws. Even using 2 sets of rings is an old practice by those who actually think it helps. This is all ancient knowledge in large magnum rifle world.
I just picked up a BAT HR Lapua action for my next build. Takes a lot of variables out of the equation with an integral rail. Had Defiance Deviant Tactical Lapua as well and is a pretty good action with integral rail. Not as nice as the BAT tho. Have a Kelby Atlas Lapua action with screwed and pinned base that also works perfectly fine. It’s all in the procedure. I always tell people you can have the best rings and bases money can buy but they won’t do their job very well if not installed correctly.
Ive seen the Allen magnums and no offense to Mr. Allen but there’s nothing cutting edge there. Just more wildcats in the pile. It’s all fun but nothing special. I have wildcatted many of my own original designs as have tons of other people over the last 70 years.
