Another question I see asked all the time is whether or not you should bed your rifle stock. This is one of those things that for whatever reason has become a hot topic and it gets new shooters in a fluster. Newer shooters wind up feeling like their rifle is inadequate and will not function properly unless it is bedded. The problem is these same new shooters really don’t have much idea what bedding is for and whether or not it is even necessary in their case. We’re going to discuss the practice and what it’s for in hopes of giving everybody a clear picture on whether or not this is something they need to be considering!
