Bedded stock

So I got brave and decided to pillar bed the stock on my ruger M77 MKII 7mm. I did it in stages (rear pillar, then the front pillar/recoil lug, then the trigger guard. It turned out great so now I am going to do my .270 and then my .243.

    Here are some pics of the finished job. Sorry, I was kinda busy so i didn't take any pics of the process. I think I am going to do one last thing just for cosmetic reasons and that is to bed the rest of the action just so there is no gap between the action and the stock.

    Looks good. How soon before you're ready to shoot it?

    Sure is nerve racking waiting until morning to break it out of the glass!!!
    Don't sleep much those nights.

    I am getting ready to do a tang safety 300 win mag here in about a week.

    That's a good looking bedding job, is that a Boyds Prarie style stock? If so I have the same stock on my Rem700 .300wm and love it, but I need to do somemore bedding work to mine as well. Did you make your own pillars, or order them and how far infront of the barrell did you bed, looks like about an inch or so. Hope it shoots as well as it looks.
