Thanks for the reply..
For the life of me I can not figure out where I went wrong. I've gone over my process in my head multiple times.
Do you generally bolt the bottom metal back to the action during the curing process or do you just tape the barreled action to the stock with the screws you mentioned in place? The other 3 rifles were 2 Ruger's and a Remington. So this was my first weatherby.
No pillars as it was in the factory assumark stock with aluminum bedding block. I did use accurisers (Trigger Springs|Aluminum Pillar|Pillar Bedding|Gunsmithing
). I posted a question about bedding once before and mentioned these and one gunsmith on here told me how dumb they were and I was and unnecessary they were. That good gunsmiths had a way of not needing these with an aluminum bedding block. But proceeded to give me no help. So I used them anyways. In my unexperienced opinion they helped here. In my case the action was resting on the flat behing the recoil lug with a pretty big gap between the bottom of the integral recoil lug (which on a Mk 5 is where the front action bolt is) and the stock. Using these helped make it so that the only solid contacts were the 2 action bolt locations.
If the bedding job is stress free when it comes out will the slight cant affect anything other than looks?
I may be stripping this down and starting over. If so, that's ok to. That's why I'm doing this stuff myself, to learn.
