Bedding- Right, Wrong Or Otherwise
Just getting ready to bed my low buck Stevens 200. I scammed a B&C A2 stock and am awaiting the new Douglass XX barrel in .222 from Sharp Shooter Supply. I went cheapo and am going totop it off with a Weaver 6-18 variable in lapped Burris XTreme rings with a Warne one piece steel mount. I thought that might stiffen up the actiona bit.
This is not a target gun obviously, I just want an accurate mid range (inside 250 yards) crow and woodchuck thumper.
I was looking for experiences using Devcon versus Marine Tex, and the benefits or draw backs of bedding the tang. I've read a ton of differing opinions on where to bed and was wondering what has worked out for you all. I had planned on doing the action walls and foot print, recoil lug which is a thicker piece from SSS, and the first three inches of the barrel. not sure now after reading conflicting reports.
Thanks in advance.
