Action Inserts,V blocks, bedding blocks are good but do not eliminate the need for a good skim bed
or a full bedding job.
Some of the bedding block already have the pillars as part of the system. But you have to look
at them to make they go all the way through the stock to the bottom metal. If they don't you will
need to shim (Washers) until they contact the bottom metal for a metal to metal fit.
I like to bed all inserted stocks and pillar them if they don't have proper pillars.
Some will say bedding is not nessary, But I have never seen a case that bedding over a bedding
block hurt the accuracy. In most cases it improved the accuracy and the consistency.
There is no doubt that some sort of bedding block is better than none but they do not guarantee
