The stock is wood, but I'm not sure how to cut the pillar for the estucion, should I just skim bed it and go or get some adjustable pillars and try it out? Does the estucion make contact with the pillar?
Stockey's stocks has pillar kits cheep and easy to install. On wood stocks I highly recommend Pillar bedding
to make the bedding last.
You can bed without pillars and achieve accuracy but it doesn't last very long and the action screw torque will decrease over time due to the wood compressing.
Just my opinion
