Bedding a factory Remington synthetic stock.

I was wondering if it was worth having the factory synthetic stock on my Remington 700 pillar bedded and if its worth it. Im not sure if the stock will even fit my #4 contour Krieger barrel any how. Any info would be appreciated. It would be nice not to have to buy another stock, although I know that would prolly be a better option. Thanks.

Is it the HS Precision stock with the aluminum bedding block in it, or the cheap plastic stock everybody keeps talking about that is good to make a lamp out of ?

You could, but synthetic stock is not rigid enough to support heavy barrel, I bedded mine, it actually improved accuracy, but I didn't like the grip on it and I replaced with B&C Medalist Tactical, which I bedded the recoil lug was 1/8" from the aluminum block, it should of been resting on it...

H&S, Manners or a Mickey will work very well---I use H&S on my builds now.

Re: Bedding a factory Remington synthetic stock.

Bedding a factory stock in most cases is like polishing a turd, it will still be a turd!!
There are several low cost alternatives that are stiffer and have pillars or blocks in them. I've been favoring the B&C medalist lately because of price and quality, but there are others.

Yeah, figured so. It's the cheap remington stock, not an hs one. I currently own three hs stocks and one mcmillan with pillars installed for my rifles. I think i prefer the mcmillan personally. Thanks for the info.
