Skim Bedding

Can we discuss skim bedding. Not sure what it is and can't find anything about it on the net. I'm getting a Sendero SFII which comes with the HS Precision stock that has a full length aluminum bedding block....everyone keeps saying have it skim bedded.

Thanks

    I know what bedding is but what is skim bedding? Are we all refering to regular old bedding or are we talking something different (skim bedding)

    To the best of my knowledge that article is "skim" bedding. Fills voids and tightens things up.

    Some people refer to skim bedding when you glass an action into a stock like the H-S Precision, cuz the bedding is "thin".

    I'm not a holder to that wordage. If there is glass (epoxie) between the action and the stock, it is "glass bedded" - there is no specified thickness to call it skim bedded, or glass bedded... it's ALL glass bedded.

    Thanks CS, its just different names for the same thing. Now pillar bedding, and glue in refers to a different animal.
