Pillar Bedding The Ruger Model 77 Rimfire Rifle

Even though the shock vibrations aren’t nearly as great when firing a rimfire rifle there may be an accuracy advantage in pillar bedding. The Ruger Model 77 is an ideal candidate for such work.

When fitting a custom barrel to the Ruger Model 77/17 bolt action rifle during a recent project turned out to be an excellent time to bed the action.  The action on this rimfire is very similar to the firm’s popular Model 77 centerfire line which lends well to pillar bedding. You’ll have to make your own metal pillars to accomplish this, but this is very easy to do on a lathe.
