At Brock & Norris we aim to get the most accuracy out of your rifle.
The benefit of bedding allows us to secure the action and the stock together in the most uniform way possible, this process ensures that there is no movement under heavy recoil, allowing the rifle to shoot consistently and aiding overall accuracy.
We ensure consistently tight maximum tolerances on bedding stress which are measures to 0.001 dial indicator.
Once the bedding process is complete, barrels are left fully floating with the exception of tactical rifles and heavy guns which we bed one inch forward of the recoil lug.
Rifle actions are bedded using a pillar bedding system with either Marine Tex or Stainless steel Devcon. We have found through are experience that these two bedding materials give the best overall performance combined with durability.
The pillars are either of machined aluminum or epoxy depending on the depth of the stock at each of the action bolts. Grooves are machined on the circumference to give a good epoxy bond between the stock and the pillars. No direct contact is made between a metal pillar and the action as it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get a perfect fit between solid pillars and an action while maintaining an evenly distributed contact on the remainder of the bedding surface.
