I would hate to find out years later that, sorry, your rifle was not bedded right and ..................So how do you know.
How do you know your brain surgeon really got the tumor and not your left testicle?
Sometimes you actually have to take it on faith that when you pay a professional to do a job and do it well, they are going to do so.
