    I think that PROPERLY bedding the RSM stock is important to avoid stock cracking, as well as to make consistent reassembly of the barreled action into the stock easier. Having said that, I think it's a job for a true expert in the field, due to the unique nature of the recoil lug. Wayne at American Hunting Rifles did mine, and it's flawless. He permanently bedded the recoil lug into the stock which makes reassembly much easier.

    Do yourself a favor and call Wayne.

    Might contact Wayne to bed mine. There's one hell of a lot of meat in the RSM stock, and the wood generally sound, but bedding such as is shown above does have merit.

    Sorry To Bring an old thread up!! I have a RSM in 416 Rigby - the 1153540 Stock, RH, .375 H&H/.416 Rigby, Heavy Barrel, Wlnt Cut-Checkered, Satin Finish* This one is for the older version where the swivel stud comes through the forend.

    I was shooting it today and had some feeding issues nothing major as it was only a club shoot. My question is is the above model ruger a true CRF action? I thought it was but have some doubts now.

    Thank you in anticipation

    Agree, but the bad news is Wayne flatly stated he no longer will work on RSMs (I tried earlier this year to get him to do mine).

    So now I have an AHR. Hmmmm..... :)

    The RSM is a unique beast in how the stock is about bedded, no doubt about that!

    Of course, anyone who wants a custom RSM that's properly bedded by Wayne himself can buy mine in .458 Lott! It's for sale in the classifieds;)
