Glass bedding some stocks
With the rainy weather here lately I've gotten back into fooling with my rifles, doing some things I've wanted to get done for many years now. The last stock I bedded was about 10 years ago - a Savage 110 in .220 Swift that I had put together from a stock 110 in .30-06. I had opened a kit of Acra Glas gel back then and still had it week before last when I decided to finally float the barrel & bed the stock on a Rem 700 ADL in .222 I've had for years. I'm here to testify that the opened Acra Glas is still good to go after 10 years in storage - the bedding came out just fine on the 700. Yesterday I started the same project on another one I've been wanting to do for years - my Win 70 Varmint in .225 Win caliber. Just got her gooped-up and stuck together a couple hours ago and will reassemble it all tomorrow. The left-over Glas in the little cup kicked-over just fine this time too, so the rifle should be good as well - if I didn't glue her together some how !! That rifle was pretty accurate already even with the wood stock pressured against the barrel from the factory. I'm hoping for even tighter groups and fewer fliers after this bedding & float job. Hoping for some good weather next week to try her out and am getting some loads put together just for that session.
