Always good to see how other folks do it.
Here is the last job I did on a CZ 455 American. The streakiness is just where I tried to dye the JB Weld with dye. I was plagued by voids etc (cotton balls may have helped! ). Did pillars also. Helped hugely with consistency.

It was very, very tricky to do the pillars due to so little supporting material.

As always, I learn a little more each time about what not to do.

Did a Ruger 77/17 17WSM recently, very easy and straightforward.



Regards,
Dicko.

Very nice looking bedding there pipestone and D1kco! I notice both you guys bedded the first couple inches of the barrel. What made you decide to do that versus complete free float or bedding the entire barrel?

The paradigm of common thinking!

There may or may not be evidence to deny or support the benefits of total float vs first inch bedded vs full bed, I just remember when I first started looking into it maybe 20 years ago that bedding the first inch or so seemed to be common on sporter rifles and I've done it that way ever since. It's worked for me!

Here are some pics of the Ruger 77/17 in 17WSM. I haven't pillar bedded it (yet) though I may well do because I think it will be very easy and can't hurt. It tightened groups up by approx 0.5 MOA. Target was shot in 28km/h gusts:

Change diapers and fit in small cars.

The way I saw it was while your at it with the epoxy lay the rear bbl. support, you can always sand it out if it doesn't like it. My 10/22's like this method but the Marlins I have sanded out and with a free float bbl., put a front bbl. support and they shoot superb
