    Brno bedding job

    I have a Brno 243 that I reckoned needing bedding and the barrel floated, as it didn't shoot anywhere near as well as its big sister (same model and year in 308) that is bedded in a fibreglass stock.
    A couple of weeks ago I had a go at bedding the rifle myself, and on Sunday got to the range to see if it made any improvement.
    Pre-bedding the rifle would shoot occasional sub-MOA groups, but not consistently.

    Here are the group results, warts and all. All three shot groups at 100m unless otherwise stated.
    90gr ELD-X
    Load one 1.55 MOA
    Load two 1.21, 1.33
    Load three 0.55, 1.23
    Load four 0.86, 0.57(200m)
    Load five 0.51, 0.87(200m)
    100gr Prohunter 0.49
    87gr Hornady SP 0.24
    I could explain away some poor shooting by pointing out I had shoulder and neck surgery last Monday, but I won't (because I just did!)

    Here’s a hint, the rifle won’t care what the bedding job looks like so call it a success!
