Bedding - To sleeve or not to sleeve
I bought a Bell & Carlson fiberglass stock from Midway for my 700ADL. I bedded the action from the recoil lug to the tang. Everything fits very nicely and rock solid. I replaced the cheap plastic trigger guard with the metal guard from Midway and bedded it as well. I also got the metal front action screw bushing. Should I bed sleeves for the action screws? Or will the epoxy and fiberglass be as strong/ stable/ secure. I did fill the hole for the rear action screw with bedding epoxy and then threaded the screw into the tang. I am unsure if I should put a sleeve between the front bushing and the bottom of the receiver or just fill it with epoxy as I did in the rear. I can see arguments pro and con, so I am looking for a definitive answer from the gurus here.
