Thanks for the tutorial, Bear. I just got my bedding supplies but haven't gotten around to doing my first rifle yet, so your explanations/pictures were very helpful.

Good looking work Bear! And great photos!
I work with alot of structural adhesives and release agents at work, but had no idea about how to bed a stock, with this tutorial I feel confident I can do my Savage.
BTW that's a mighty fine lookin rifle ya got there!

I don't know if I remembered to include the action screws to apply release agent to or not-DO it! It IS a nice looking rifle-it's yours Gordo. Next I'm free floating the barrel and doing the trigger & it'll be done.

Init to learnit.

edit* Nice write-up! I thought the glass stuff was supposed to cover more of the stock; this makes better sense.

I question the wisdom of trying this myself, as i was once that guy at the supermarket with a shoe glued to his hand .

A picture saves a thousand words or something like that. Thank you for all your work on this, I wish this was around when I tried my first bedding.

Hey SB, did you have to use release agent on the action screws as well? How do you prevent the screws picking up bedding agent and mating to the action?
