Once bedded and the action is torqued to spec. I don't believe it will make any difference.

When looking at the design of the way the BMAG attachment is to the Boyd's Featherweight Stock, the front magazine mount/magazine clip (FMM), appeared to me, to also be acting as a bedding post which set the height of the action and barrel in the stock. Once the action screw is torqued, the FMM played an integral part of the lock, stock, barrel assembly. The only other place the action connected to the stock was by the rear of the trigger assembly with the second action screw.

I noticed that you also used a ring of tape on the barrel. I presume this was to set the barrel gap from the stock as you set the barrel/action/trigger (BAT) assembly into the stock and bedding material. Without the FFM in place, this would be the only way to prevent the BAT from squeezing to close to the stock. If this happened, once the FFM were in place it would keep the chamber area off of the bedding material, rendering it useless. However, with the FFM able to float, the bedding material will be supporting the barrel and action.

All valid points. I guess I figured relying on a loose plastic clip for any type of consistency was a bad idea. This would also allow the torque of the action to vary with temperature as the plastic would move “creep” with heat.
Proof is in the groups I guess, and seeing as I don’t think it can get any worse, I was willing to try anything to make it better. Where I shoot is an hour drive one way, and with the travel for work, the kids and wife...I will just have to wait awhile before testing again.
The previous bedding job did help tremendously but it was consistent POI due to the action torque varying. I’m hoping this go around, that isn’t an issue.

Edit, it was NOT consistent due to action torque
