With the putty holding the barreled action where I wanted it, I didn't have to worry about high spots or low spots or an out of square relation between the action & stock (if that makes any sense ). If you get some bedding compound in the mag well area or in the trigger area, so what, that is what they make a dremel or file for.
I used 3 thicknesses of masking tape - worked well.

I removed my mag box (which is a bitch by the way) and lined the walls of the well with clay before bedding.

Man I hear that! The first time you remove that dang thing you wanna throw it out the window before it's all said & done! I did think about putting anything in the mag well (blind mag on mine), a 3-flute 1/8 endmill in my dremel made extremely quick (albeit messy) work of any over flow.

This is what mine looks like
Thank you for answering that, great job by the way...I had been wondering how to bed around the rear action screw on my stevens 200. Thanks
