Going to be doing the same thing to my 6.5 tomorrow. R700 and a Grey Bull stock. Got a question for you...why do you tape across the bottom & outside edge of the recoil lug? Is the tape special (just happen to notice it was different than the painters tape that you used in the forward area of the recoil lug) Thanks in advance.
Bob, I see you did not bed forward of the recoil lug. I have always bedded 1" forward of the lug. Your reasoning? so that I can learn.
Thank you for all the kind words fellas, I had a great time doing this! I actually wish I had another one or two to bed right now!! The tape on the sides and bottom of the recoil lug is used to create a .010" gap between the lug & the bedding.
Here is a link to the tape:
