l took the rifle down to the farm for some testing today and am very happy to say it is as good as it was and l do not have any issues with the bedding

in the photo of sighting in and checking the rifle below the top group is the first cold clean shot on its own and two together above it
then three shots into one hole @ 100 after adjustments, pretty happy as l was a bit worried but the repair is good :drinks:
