Bedding question about KSA 722



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello All,

Long time reader first time poster.
I have a keystone, I bought new over 3 yrs ago love shooting it. It'll group gemtech extremely well, but I can't get anything eles to group near as well. So I was wondering if anyone has bedded this action? Either with pilers or just glass bedded ? Any help with or without pictures is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking and responding.

I would give Keystone a call and see what they say. They do have a 1/2" @50 yd guarantee for the KSA 722. They have made some mods since the ones that were put out 3 years ago. Mainly to the bolt and trigger.

Thank you for your response. Seems like no one is into the 722 varmint.

My rifle will definitely shoot a half inch, but I'm looking for extreme accuracy. No offence to any but a half inch sucks in my opinion. If it's not drilling a X almost every shot, then I don't want it lol..
Mine will shoot great just every so often when moving it on the rest it'll throw a shot low n right constantly.

Well I kind of agree 1/2" @50 yards isn't good enough to leave it alone. But it is still very accurate for an out of the box .22lr rifle that sells for well under $400. That's also better than the average rimfire shooter is even able to shoot. I'm surprised that they're not more popular than they are. My guess is that they don't have a large following because there is no aftermarket support for the rifle. Still a great buy for the steel and walnut guys around here (of which there are plenty). As far as yours IMO should try bedding the stock. Most rimfire's will benefit from a well bedded stock. It may help with the consistency. I don't know of anyone who's bedded a gun and had it shoot worse, as long as it was done correctly.

I've pilllared and bedded my 722V but really didn't notice much of a difference. What does keep mine shooting tight groups is to keep the bore clean. These have micro groove barrels. After a deep clean it takes about 10 shots to bring the groups back together. Mine does prefer a front bag but a tight grip on a cheap bipod does equally well.

I did a test with a few barrels that were micro and after about 60 rounds down range, they all started to open the group's up. Cleaned and ban nice and tight groups again.
