I used JB weld to bed the base to the action. I used 8541 tactical scope base install instructions. Google will get you were to the site. I have not shot out past 300 yet as I have mot had time to get to a range any farther.
The reason why I bedded my base was the EGW did not fully meet the action with out a gap. I shot the gun before I bedded the base and it was all over the place. Talked to a friend and he suggested bedding it. Now it is a great shooter out to 300 so far.
Good luck and hope this helps

Thanks for your response..
So basically, it isn't necessary to use JB to weld the rail to the receiver unless there is a gap?
So if it bolt down the front part of the rail and there is no gap then I'm good to go and won't need JB weld, correct?

I would say it should be fine if no significant gap. The gap on my rifle was not that much. Mayne around .001
Before I put the one piece picatinny on it shot great. Than I put the new base on it shot terrible. All over the page at 100. After I bed the base it shot great.
I always use a torque wrench made by wheeler on my guns.
