Hi,
I have an older (Jap) 300 Weatherby, that the barrel was contacting the stock, so the rounds were hitting in a 3 inch group, instead of 1 inch. I pulled the stock off and found the area where the front screw, screws into the action assy, only had a tinny bit of epoxy or glue or what every they used and the rest of the area was open creating over a 1/8 inch drop. I cut small pieces of steel plumbers tape to fill in the area, level and then put two pieces over the hole area. Now when I do the dollar (float) test, it slides up and down between the barrel and stock, although snug and my groups are with in a inch. But I don't want to leave the steal there (I'm afraid it will start moving after awhile), I want to fill in the area with some type of resin or something. Not sure what to use. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Bed it with AcraGlas, Bedrock, Pro2000 or some other epoxy bedding resin. But get someone to explain to you how it is done before you start pouring resin.
