Re: Older Savage 110
Go to the fridge an drink a can of your favorite beer...
Then take a pair of scissors and cut the can into shims for the action. itll give the reciever a solid even area to seat to under screw tension and lift the barrel out of the channel a good .025" or so. Torque the action screws to 65 in lbs and go shoot it. If the results are outstanding then glass or epoxy bed the action and float the barrel. Remember when bedding only torque the action screws to about 10 in lbs. just enough to seat the action into the stock while the bedding cures.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
