Bedding a Remington 700 Scope Base (It’s Not as Racy as It Sounds)
The Remington 700 is an excellent platform to build a precision rifle on, however, it does require a little bit of elbow grease. Because of the methods used to manufacture these actions the top doesn’t typically line up quite right front to back. Because of this, a one piece scope base will often be forced to bend when properly torqued. This puts stress on the receiver, the base, and the scope and cost you valuable accuracy. In this video I lay out my simple method for bedding a one piece scope base on a Remington 700 receiver. Bedding the scope base ensures that the rail sits level, which in turn alleviates stress and should improve your accuray.
