    hahahaha, yes. You can always look at the pics on facebook I want to make the centre bed moveable up and down the length of the barrel/stock so I can, uh move it to see if that allows me to tune the resonance and improve accuracy. The original bedding designs all assume MkVII ammo which doesnt have the same burn rate as modern powders such as 2208 and hence resonance probably differs. I suspect it needs to be a bit further away than it is now, the thing is I have no idea how far. Al good fun and excuse to blast away at Kaitoke over winter.

    HOT TIP ! Rocol silicone mold release spray does NOT work as a release agent , in fact I thinks it acts as a sort of primer to make everything STICK like you wouldn't believe
    ( for sale , 1x BSA supersport 5 , freshly bedded .........perfect job .... not one thou of movement )

    Nope. Not really pliable enough and a pain to get to work with - too solid...

    Yep, silicone products are NO GO with epoxy products of any sort. Use a wax, a shoe polish or a professional release agent unless you know what you are about. I have a nifty go to spray that I use, but I'm not about to suggest least someone glues a gun together and I get the big finger. Shoe polish works, and is easy-ish to clean up too...

    As far as the supersport 5, chuck it in the freezer for a few hours in a plastic bag - the thermal shock might free the action up...

    I'd thought about kneedit as well, being too solid was the only reason I didn't consider it further. The devcon in the tubes isn't too much more expensive. Will one pair/set of tubes be enough?

    Im using turtle wax car polish as the release agent, seems to be working well. A 4$2 tub should outlast me....as long as I dont do something silly like wash the car...

    I have 2 x No4 mk2s, both used to shoot well then went awol

    D:

    Man they are a pain in the ass, on and off? a reckon a hooker's draws gets less use.

    I have rebedded one with centre bedding similar to Roger W's book, trying it out at 500yds tomorrow also re-did the wrist and re-enforce The second one Ive almost finished bedding to the Canadian Armourers manual I have incl wrist and re-enforce, might be shot tomorrow if I can assemble it tonight, a new centre bed was "poured" last night, so depends on if its OK when I get home.

    I have 2 un-issued stocks Im also working on....one will be std "T" the other is shh top secret....

    ;]

    Draws are painful also, Ive made new ones out of brass so I can add shims behind them to adjust alignmnet and tightness....







    Something to be said for a nice std Barnard TR.....
