    I can't decide which bedding to do to my riffle.It's a 300 win mag remington 700 ADL in a synthetic stock? Any pointers in what direction I should go?

    Brownell's Acraglas gel is a good beginner's option.

    Brownell's also sells pillar-bedding kits.

    I'm assuming that the ADL gets a different pillar kit than the BDL - no?

    Probably use the same kit. Have you tried looking up the kit on Brownell's website and reading the product information?

    I spent about Sept 25 - Oct 8 = 13 days working on a Rem 700 ADL 7mmRemMag.

    I took off the original 1960's Hart barrel and wood stock and put on a Shilen barrel.
    I cut threads and chamber.
    I made some pillars from 1/2" 6061 Aluminum round stock.
    I cut the concave radius [1.355" diameter] on the tops of the pillars to fit the Rem 700 receiver using a boring head.
    The stock was a 20 ounce High Tech Specialties [Bansner].
    Bansner has a video:

    I pre compressed the pillars with the action screws.
    I used Devcon Steel putty [epoxy].
    I wrapped the receiver and stock with surgical rubber tubing and put them under a heating pad until cured.
    I made a new recoil lug because the old one was rusty.
    My recoil lug had thousands of thickness variation, as I do not have a surface grinder. I got paranoid about that.
    So I bought a Holland lug. It has a hole for a pin.
    So I drilled a hole in the receiver to pin the lug.
    The Holland lug was thicker, so I milled out some extra material from the stock.
    I glued a Pine plug in the stock butt.
    I screwed a large grind to fit Limbsaver recoil pad to the Pine.
    I did not grind the pad, but covered the reveal with a Triad tactical stock pack

    I left the pull long on the stock, as I do my shooting prone from a bipod.
    I shot it at 100 yards but did not finish it in time for hunting.
    It consistantly shoots 1" 3 shot groups at 100 yards, which is good for a rifle that light and powerful.
    I still need to put epoxy putty on the stock, sand, and paint.
