Bedding MOA Receiver



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey everyone,

I have a 10/22 that I've been working on for a while. The action is a MOA receiver with a threaded 18" Douglas heavy barrel. To everyone that has experience with this receiver, is it necessary to glass bed the receiver, or is bolting down the back of the receiver with the rear lug enough?

Even rifles like the Rem 700 or the Winchester 70 that have two hold downs shoot better when bedded.

I would bed it.

As close a fit as you can get between action and stock...
You are trying to achieve repeatability in the position of the action in the stock and from shot to shot, which will theoretically give you better accuracy.
Devcon Liquid Steel, the putty version...

IMO For that setup, a stainless steel receiver with a threaded barrel which is about as stiff as you can make this design, I would only pillar bed the front and float the rest without it touching the stock. If its a field gun I would also bed a few patches at the back.

Well, that brings up a good question. To anyone that owns a similar setup to what mentioned above... Assuming you bedded, how much bedding did you do?

Personally I would bed both take down areas and the little "shelf" the action sits on.

Pillar bedding is a good idea but it's main function is to keep from compressing the wood in the stock.

Epoxy Glass bedding it done for accuracy. It mates the action to the stock in a microscopic fit so the action is not stressed and that it vibrates in a near identical way shot to shot.

As for bedding the barrel some barrels shoot better free floated and some shoot better with a bit of support. Just something to test and find out. Many of us just use some inner tube rubber for a barrel support and experiment with the location for accuracy.

I have 10/22s I used the rubber support and other I put a small pad of bedding material. I have had good results with both.

I did a build with a MOA receiver and a threaded bull barrel from Douglas. I used Nemo's adjustable bedding. It took a couple of range sessions with a torque wrench, but the results were awesome!
