Make sure you drill out the screw holes so that the actions screws are not binding.
When you mask off the recoil lug, do the front, bottom and sides. Two to three layers is enough.
Ok good I did 2 on the front 2 on the sides and 3 on the bottom, I just drilled out the action screw holes and now they are MUCH easier to get in. I noticed that once the rifle was put back together there was less play in the recoil lug area. Is it bad that my action still moves slightly forward and back?
