Muzzleloader bedding



Log in to see fewer ads
Most black powders rifles have a single screw to secure the stock to the barreled action. My knight disc elite has an obvious up ad down movement front and rear. Has anyone considered an additional bedding screw at the rear of the action? I know some have done this with the 10/22. Any suggestions are appreciated.

My MK85 had the same issue.
I bedded the tang and the lug that the screw threads into.
No movement.
I did not want to anneal, drill and tap the tang.
HTH,
Rob

So you simply bedded the rear of the receiver and recoil lug pocket?

Exactly.
I use a torque driver and tighten to 35 inch pounds. Blue Loctite on the screw.
The gun is a .50 shooting 260 Speer pistol bullets in a sabot in front of 80 grains of Swiss 3F.
I have taken two elk with it the early season in New Mexico.

One more suggestion: I coat the bottom of the receiver and barrel with Barricade or Boeshield so I don't worry about rain during the hunting season.
My gun is stainless but it will still rust given time.
Boeshield is my favorite.
This is done after I check the bedding and before putting the gun back in the stock.

I have always coated the bottom of barreled actions with Remington Drilube to prevent rust, good stuff, stays put until you wipe it off with a solvent soaked rag.
Thanks for the lnfo.
