I have a number of Ruger No 1's in cal from 22/250 to 500 Nitro x 3".
The article follows a similar method to mine with the exception that I releave the forend contact with the barrel entirely and glass bed it to the hanger either side of the screw. Once the bedding is set tighten the hanger screw and check the contact of wood against the receiver. With fine sanding releive this area also.
Now we have a glass bedded forend with no upward pressure on the barrel and no backward contact with the receiver.
As a testiment to this bedding method my 22/250 has recorded a group of 0.21 and the 22PPC a 0.152. Both are factory rifles with factory barrels. Mind I have worked the factory triggers to a 6 oz letoff also.
