xoxoxo, Not trying to start a fight. You did suggest it. I was pointing out it is not necessary IMHO from my experience. Don't get your panties in a bunch over a post that was intended to clarify. It was not intended to take a jab at anyone.
It seems 7point62 has also had a similar experience to mine. 3 rifles, no bedding. Do you have a Boyds stock, tell us what you have found!!! If the OP wants a polymer stock w/ aluminum bedding would be a great choice. I re-stocked w/ a wood laminate, that is what I can speak to.

Who do you think makes all of Remington's laminate stocks? Boyd's that's who. Plus every rifle can benefit from being bedded unless it has the full length aluminum bedding block.

See, this is how an argument begins. I gave an opinion based on actually using an item. You make a blanket statement and it is gospel. BTW Remington does not bed their Boyds stocks either. Please give just one instance, from your experience to back up your statements. These are both Boyds stocks, neither is bedded and both shoot great.


This rifle is not bedded, CZ 527

Neither is this Savage 110


I guess I am just lucky as they all are superb shooters. I can post another 10 or so if you still feel bedding is the only way to go.
Bedding may help some rifles, others actually like pressure near the front of the stock. The Finns used all sorts of shims under the barrel at different points to achieve better accuracy. Free floating and bedding are not the cure all. Just one alternative.

Hey jpattershonn,
That rifle in the top picture looks like a Husqvarna on the 96 commercial action. Am I right? What caliber is it in?
cottontop

Sorry buddy, That is a 1947 receiver. One of the 10,000 640's made on FN receivers. It is a 1955 8x57.
Here is a commercail 96 action in 9.3x57.

Commercail '94 action in 9.3x57

Thanks...you got a seriously nice collection there.

No, I messed around with it for about 15 minutes making sure everything was well seated and tight...and then it was off to zero it in. I've since added a leather military sling, like the old M1 slings, and a steel trigger guard.

I went ahead and ordered the H-S police from Midway because they were on sale for $40 off. Im pretty sure its the same stock that Remington put on the police model from the factory. Should suit me. I will probably shoot it first before i see about glass bedding the action. May not need it.

I was hoping Remington had went back to a metal trigger guard. I had to replace the plastic one on an ADL i bought a while back.

A little epoxy goes a long way..............

Think of it as a shock absorber.

Yes,you can have a stock that behaves perfectly from its maker,duh....thats what we're paying for right?But over the long haul.....that little bit of epoxy between "hard points" is IMO,the right thing to do.

And there IS a difference between compounds.They range from rubbery soft to extra firm.Just like "shocks".Putting a "hard" compound on a .223 for instance.....probably isn't necessary.Change calibres to a .375 or .416....well,you get the idea.
