    Sweet setup BB! All you did was make me want to buy a new rifle.

    I have EGW rails on two rifles and they are both true. I do prefer the fit and finish of my TPS steel rail, however. You can see how I mounted mine on the Proper Procedure for Mounting a Base thread.

    I've seen your base mounting video (it's a great diy clip) I just need to get the stuff to get it done. Are you ever going to make a video for bedding the action? I'm intrested in seeing that as well.

    Ive had the same experiences thats why I was asking. Im thinking about getting a different barrel from mine, looks like you can order a new one with the equipment needed for around $300.

    Here is the best bedding series of videos for Remington 700s I have found. This guy knows his stuff, here is part one:

    I am thinking about doing a video on this Savage, though, as they are different than 700s (you don't bed the tang). It is just a lot of work to make the videos.

    Well this isn't my first job, but it was my first on a Savage. They are quirky with the barrel nut, recoil lug tab and voids, etc. I only use Devcon Steel Epoxy Putty (10110). It is the bees knees. JB Weld steel and Marine Tex work too, but I think Devcon is the best. Acraglas acra-sucks, IMO.
