    All that dead weight hanging around the shop must make it hard to get anything done. At least Ronnie might buy lunch every day.

    Cherry Bomb gets my vote also. If it was a varmint rifle you could call it Red Mist.

    Don

    I think bedding scope rings is a solution to a problem that does not exist. Especially with an action that has an integral dovetail.

    When you bed an action, you use the actual action. Gary mentioned that the scope was still in the box. To make all of this worth while, I would think you would use the exact scope that was going in the rings.........jackie

    Mounting scopes on actions such as the Panda and Stillers that have an integral rail and use scope rings that are precisely machined in pairs like the Kelblys probably receive no benefit by ring bedding as long as the rings and caps are installed as marked.

    Round actions, especially, that use add-on bases, the ring bases and ring bores both should be bedded. Tony B spends extra effort in aligning and bedding of his scope mountings. You sure can't argue with his results.

    Oh, I picked up 3 more votes, off the street, for Cherry Bomb!!

    The scope came out of the box

    Jackie, the new scope was taken from the box for the bedding. Who knows, it just might help. Probably overkill. A few other things were done. I don't want to mention those because arguments would ensue.

    We had a great day at the range yesterday. Hope you get well soon.

    Your new rifle is clearly a "woman in red". The original film from 1953 starred Barbara Stanwyck. Why not call her Barbara?

    I like Cherry Bomb too
    I like "Lady in Red". Lady, like the rifle, is more special than simply woman.

    You might prefer to call your special rifle the "Red Lady".

    With a name like that, she will always have to behave with dignity, like a lady.

    Start out where you'll hopefully end up

    If it works out to be one of those special rifles, in time you'll refer to it as "Ol' Red". For now, "Red" will do.

    You are a pretty sharp guy

    I want a single name. Cherry sounds good if it shoots. Satan if it won't shoot! Good advice. Thanks.
