I'm after a bit of feedback from you guys that have been down this road before. I've fitted a 20" fluted GM barrel to my 77/17 and bedded the action. I normaly like to bed the first few inches of the barrel forward of the receiver but having a look at this barrel the flutes on the underside and sides come back to within about 0.7" of the receiver. I'm reluctant to bed using my preferred method as it would no doubt be impossible to remove the barrel without damaging the bedding due to the flutes allowing devcon to flow into them and locking the barrel to the stock. Any ideas or alternative bedding options? Or is OK to leave a heavy barrel like this fully floated (and unsupported)? What methods have given good accuracy for you guys? Thanks in advance.
