wpsdlrg, thanks for posting your test methodology. Now I understand how you came to your conclusion on bedding your barreled action. Lots of folks do it that way.
I do know that whatever method one uses to end up with their barreled action's metal parts nestled in epoxy, as long as the external pressure to it is consistant in force, place and direction, good accuracy is at hand. To me, that's easier to attain without anything touching the barrel. Accuracy is all things in the total system repeatable. Us humans are probably the least repeatable.
