I posted the other day about some accuracy issues on a new 7mm08 project gun I put together..

I was testing to see if I could get away with not bedding the action into the McMillan Game Scout stock (LOVE)... once bedded, stacking them tight.

The gun on the right is my 3 year old's 6.8

yes sir!

Testing different factory loads, allowing time for the barrel to cool down really shows it is worth spending some time on testing different loads.

Nice. I love the camo pattern on that stock.

I bet your 3 year old has a hell of a time dragging that 6.8 through the woods. grin

Got a link to what you did to bed the rifle?

Bedding?
No, I don't have an article on it.
My dad taught me a long time ago.
It's not hard and I just can't pay someone over a $100 to do a job I can do for 10 bucks and 20 minutes of work.

Come on ccoker...it's more than 20 minutes worth of work to pillar & bed a rifle if done properly. I've got 20 minutes just in cleaning up marine tex and clear shoe polish grin Seems to me it's a couple hours on both sides of the job for me...but I disassemble everything and tape stuff off...it really is a pain and worth what I pay my smith. Plus, his looks professional and not like a 6 year old with play dough (which is how mine normally look) rofl

On the weight...I was just curious, it looks light!

Ccoker, I really like the looks of that rig. Good color choices and I lm also a fan of the Bushnell LRHS.

Are you sure thatís not an A3 sporter stock rather than a gamescout?

So you wrote an article about a lightweight hunting build and you haven't weighed the finished product? laugh

Very good article and the rig looks amazing.

I will try and weigh it...

crap, you are right, it's an A3 Sporter, dug through email and found the order confirmation.
Had the stock over a year... I recall discussing the GameScout
Will fix the article, thank you
