bedding advise



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently bought a Ruger 77/22 rsi 22 wmr. When I removed the action from the stock I noticed that it had a pressure point machined in from the factory. My question is has anyone done a bedding job on the rsi model and if so did you float the barrel and what results did you get?

Thanks jth71

My rifle has the standard walnut stock, I went ahead and pillar bedded the action, and cleared the barrel channel. Then built up a pressure pad near the end of the stocks forearm using aluminum backed hvac tape.
I tested the rifle with the skinny barrel free floated, then added the layers of tape under the barrel until the groups tightened up.

I replaced my rifle's walnut stock with a Boyd's Rimfire Thumbhole which free-floats the barrel. I don't think I would want to mess with the bedding given the groups I'm getting.

That is a 10-shot 50-yard group and I take full responsibility for the flyer.
