    Yes, its true I bed all my scope bases these days. I seem to have less windage and elevation adjustment to get rifles zero'd now and it sure cant hurt.

    On my hard use rifle I actually just glue base to receiver this way.

    Some will say this is overkill but it sure does not hurt accuracy and I have yet to have a screw or base come loose.

    BUT IF YOU DO THIS TO FANCY PAINTED RIFLE IT WILL PULL PAINT UP WHEN YOU FINALLY REMOVE SO BE WARNED.

    I never would have thought of doing that, but it seems like a pretty neat idea. For a stainless barrel, do you need to scuff the mounting location with scotch brite or something or just clean it very well?

    usually I get my rifles with unpainted bbls and actions. I just clena with Acetone and then epoxy on. Then I just Dura Coat whole rifle if I want nice or more common I just Krylon to paint it.
