Hello all, I will be getting this rifle soon. It is sold in a Bell & Carlson stock with aluminum bedding block. From various reviews online from years past, it may or may not be "skim bedded" with hot glue. NO 6. All stocks need pillars, even stocks with bedding blocks http://erniethegunsmith.com/catalog/i186.html This link has some points in it that make a lot of sense to me, particularly: So my questions are as follows: a) If doing this with his accuriser pillars, do I need to remove the bedding the rifle comes with or do I bed simply on top of it? b) He coats the areas to be bedded with compound and then inserts the barreled action into the stock and tightens action screws to 10 in-lbs. I am imagining that some bedding compound rides on top of the screws all the way into the bedded action as he does this. Does the screw still screw back out at the end or is there a special procedure? I am also imagining that that compound riding on top of the screw will never move from that 10 in-lb location where it stops so how does the screw tighten further after it is hardened up there?
