    Just got a quote back from gunsmith for inletting a Mauser stock for Bold trigger with thumb safety, pillar bedding, and glassing action and barrel. Came in about $100 more than buying a Houge overmolded stock with full length alluminum bedding and pre inletted for that trigger, then glassing it myself if wasn't happy with how it shot. Buddy of mine has one on a 700 and never needed to touch it after he put just the stock on.

    Was thinking though, I could get the pillar bedded stock without the alluminum bed. glass it, and still come out way ahead on price. An thoughts on doing this vs the original plan with the full alluminum bedding with a maybe glass job later if doesn't shoot to suite me?

    Not exactly the response I was hoping for...

    Let me phrase the question a different way. If I get a plain Hogue stock with the aluminum pillars, but no full length aluminum bed, and glass it, for practical hunting purposes, will I ever be able to tell a difference in that one and the one with the full length aluminum bedding block, with or without, "skim bedding" to finish it out?

    That depends on your skill. If you can only shoot 2 MOA then a 1/2 MOA and a 2 MOA rifle wont show much difference. Most rifles with bedding of any kind will be plenty accurate for hunting.

    Am a MOA shooter looking for at least a 1.5 MOA rifle under any circumstances or weather.
