recoil lug bedding

How much of the recoil lug do y'all recommend to be relieved in bedding a Model 70 and a Remington 700 action?

    On the Rem 700's I relieve the front and both sides of the lug about the thickness of one piece of thick electrical tape.
    For the Win M-70 I only use one piec of tape accross the front of the lower part of the lug so it s a littl easier to remove.

    in either case you want the back of the lug making full contact so it take the brunt of the recoil

    What about the bottom of the recoil lug? Do you relieve it or not?

    I leave the bottom of the lug alone to have full contact like the back of the lug. In my mind it kinda acts like another bedding pillar and adds a little more for the stock to hold to when the action is torqued.
