Thanks for taking the time to put this together. I really do enjoy bedding rifles, which is probably a good thing because I usually have to do it a few times to get it where I want it. Devon is also my bedding material of choice. I have noticed since it is so thick it usually leave some slight voids in the vertical surfaces. I know it really doesn't matter that much but the look just bothers me. I like the idea of painting the exposed inletting with Devon. I was thinking the next rifle I do I will use devcon steel putty for the bulk of the bedding then follow it up with some devcon steel liquid to skim coat the bedding and paint the exposed inletting, just to make everything look good. Another material I would love to try for bedding that I used to use as a mech was belzona. That is some seriously strong stuff, but also seriously expensive.

Art, when you talk about a stand off device do you mean a hard object that fits inside the forend of the stock under the barrel to work as a fulcrum?

Thanks from jkh62

Before doing any bedding, check the alignment of the receiver legs in the stock, and whether the barrel is centered in the stock channel. And also check the alignment of the stock ferrule and the lower band - the 'pull' on the band should be straight down.

If the alignment of all those things isn't good (straight and with no sideways pressure), think about how to fix it. The purpose of the bedding material is to fill the spaces that are needed for the receiver / barrel / ferrule to be in good alignment when installed in the stock.
If any 'stock fitting' is needed, it should be done before bedding.

Excellent write up, pictures and description. I have an M1A Champions Choice built for me with the McMillan stock, same color scheme as yours, Springfield lugged receiver, Douglas heavy barrel 1 in 10 rifling , nice trigger. Your article shows me a lot about the time and labor that goes into making one. Thanks very much for sharing this.

Thanks from jkh62 and shooter86314

It looks good except I would suggest that bedding the rifle with the unitized gas system in place will result in not having adequate pressure at the ferrule.
