I once had a link to an article about how to bed a Savage. That was years ago and the 'puter used crashed, so I no longer have the link. It was no where as instructional as "Hillbill's Bedding 101", but it did help. There's a guy on another forum who wants to know the procedure, and a picture is as good as a thousand words, as they say. Anyone have a link for this information?
I used two thicknesses of painters tape for the tang area...probably overkill, but it has shot great ever since rebedding it. First time, I used ProBed 2000, but did not last. Recoil lug and action loosened up after a couple years. Dremeled the PB out and replaced it with Devcon. It still fits like a glove.
Probed is nice but I will not use it on a heavy kicker anymore. High pressure/energy seems to crush it. In my last composite class we went over fillers.
Glass beads are mixed up to 3 to 1 by volume with resin, yes 3 parts glass beads to 1 part resin . Reduces weight, a gallon of glass beads only weighs 8oz. A gallon is 231 cubic inches Reduces shrinkage. Increases spreadability or in proper terms, lowers viscosity and improves flow. Lowers cost, a gallon of glass beads cost about $20 and your using less resin. Big thing was, NOT TO BE USED IN STRUCTUAL APPLICATIONS.
