    I have tested Federal waxed-lead 40 grain bulk ammo in a wide variety of excellent rifles. I find it will rarely group under 2.5" at 100 yards even in quiet air. A good lot of Federal Automatch, on the other hand, often gives me 1" groups at 100 yards and consistent squirrel head hits in the field. I have been shooting over 60 years.

    Yep, there are two general ways to pillar-bed a stock.

    One uses aluminium or steel pillars epoxied into the stock...

    The other uses Bedding compound mixed with powdered metal (drill shavings).
    Both have the same effect, they help lock the action into the stock so that there is less movement.

    When I do a regular bed job, after it totally cures, I usually use method two to pillar bed 'em.
    Or I'll use Escutcheons...depends on what's needed.
