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.
