I wouldn't true the action unless you are going to replace the barrel.
I do a lot of Weatherby Mark 5s and hey seem to do there best if they are full pillar bedded.
What you want is to have the bottom metal in contact with the pillars and the pillar in contact
with the action and recoil lug with bedding compound filling every contact point between the
stock and the action.
Do not leave a gap between the bottom of the recoil lug and the stock .after fitting the pillars
where they are metal to metal, fill the recoil lug with bedding compound and force any excess
Out by clamping.
