The ultimate epoxy bedding compound!
Epoxy or glass bedding has been popular for many years as a tool for accurizing rifles of all types. Accuracy depends on shot-to-shot consistency. A great deal of a rifle’s ability to achieve this consistency is dictated by the relationship of the metal and the stock. During the firing process, a great deal of recoil or kick is created which tends to shift the barrel and action in the stock. This change dramatically affects the rifles ability to achieve shot-to-shot repeatability. In order to achieve extreme accuracy, we need to go beyond just good fit. We need to manage vibration cycles. In nature, all things vibrate and in order for a rifle to achieve extreme repeatability we must minimize the vibration cycles and make them as consistent as possible. Once again we are back to the stock to metal fit. Pro-Bed 2000 epoxy is the best tool available to meet that requirement. There has been a number of epoxy products used by the gunsmithing fraternity over the years and almost all of them were not designed for the sole purpose of accurizing rifles. Pro-Bed 2000 was formulated by a gunsmith with over 20 years of professional experience in epoxy bedding rifles. Pro-Bed 2000 directly addresses every problem unique to epoxy bedding.

ACCURACY. Everybody wants good accuracy, from the twice a year hunter to the competitive bench rest shooter. A properly bedded rifle will do more for accuracy than any other single investment. The SCORE HIGH ADJUSTABLE PILLARS enable you to do just that, and do it easier than any other pillar system on the market. This item is a must for anyone who requires the most in accuracy from their rifle. Gunsmiths and shooters alike will appreciate easy installment and the solid, non flexing, action to stock fit. The pillars match the contour of the action (Radius for Remington or Flat for Winchester 70) for the best in a stress free fit. The pillars mount directly to the action to maintain perfect alignment. No marking, cutting, filing or machining. The pillars are adjustable for proper action to trigger guard spacing. Because they are attached to the receiver they will not rotate during bedding (a gunsmith’s pet peeve) as with other current pillar systems. Three kits enable you to choose what is right for you:

Extensive Pillar Bedding Presentations.
pdf, Instructional presentation on How to use our Pillar Bedding Kits. These presentations are very extensive. They cover many topics such as, how to identify a properly bedded stock, how to create a stress free fit between your stock and barreled action and how to use the Score High Pillar Bedding system to get there.
Stock Drilling jig for Remington 700
$249.95 for the complete set for 700 LA, SA ADL and BDL.
$139.95 for specific models such as 700 ADL short action.
It has never been easier to drill a Remington 700 stock to accommodate bedding pillars than with our Pillar Drilling Jig. You no longer need a milling machine or even a drill press. Hardened steel drill guide bushings are held in place by a round bar the same diameter as a Remington 700 receiver. This bar is accurately positioned on the top of the stock’s inletting using a special guide pin that pilots off of either the front or rear trigger guard screw hole. The top bar with the drill bushings are held firmly in position by a screw passing thru the top bar and into a special platform machined to fit the bottom of the stock. Once the drill jig is firmly in position the hardened drill bushing will not allow the special drill bit supplied with each kit to wonder from the correct path. It takes literally seconds to accurately drill any Remington 700 stock to accept bedding pillars using only a hand drill.
Remington 700 Trigger Guard Bedding Blocks
No more damaged finish trying to remove the factory trigger guard from a bedded stock. No more trying to clean epoxy and mold release from the rough surface of a factory trigger guard. Our bedding blocks leave the bedded surface of your stock looking as if it just came out of a precision mold. Because these trigger guards are made extra tall you never have to worry about the factory trigger guard being slightly below the stock’s finished surface and what to do with the epoxy that runs over the top.
$199.95 Complete set Remington 700 Long and short action BDL and Remington 700 ADL
$94.50 Remington 700 BDL Long action only, (does not include ADL)
$94.50 Remington 700 BDL Short action only, (does not include ADL)
$22.95 Remington 700 ADL long or short action
Stock bedding tools and supplies
Piloted counter bores: $65.95
|When boring the stock to accept the aluminum pillars it is easy to get good results every time when using a piloted counterbore. There are 2 sizes available 9/16 diameter for boring the stocks of Winchesters and Howas and 5/8 diameter for al lRemingtons. To best fit the holes of the trigger guard screws each counterbore comes with 2 pilots, 9/32 and 5/16 diameters.|
|The best method of thickening epoxy by far is through the use of Fumed Silica. There are times when bedding a stock that you need the epoxy to stay exactly where you put it. Fumed silica can be added to Pro-Bed 2000 to such an extent to make the epoxy as thick as dough with absolutely no negative effects on the finished product. The thixotropic properties of the Fumed Silica allow for ease of mixing with the epoxy.|
|Mold Release Wax, 1 Pint can $17.95
The mold release agent can make or break a bedding job. Our mold release is a high grade parting compound designed for the composite industry. It is a Carnauba based wax that is applied and then buffed to a sheen similar to waxing a car. It is the best product that we have found for this application. When the aerospace industry makes carbon fiber wings and other composite parts they use this stuff to depart their molds.
