    If shooting very well is acceptable why mess with it?

    If not, skim bedding, if done properly, should not make it shoot any worse.

    Most bedding jobs on custom rifles is both pillar and skim bedded.

    I think that of the 2 processes, full glass bedding is the most consistent accuracy improver, but pillar blocks are very good for stability, and prevent slow crushing on any type of stock and so they also help improve consistency. To me, they go together.

    Bottom line, If you can't do pillars, glass bed. If you can do pillars, glass bed on top of them.

    Just my opinion, Tom

    From another forum I loiter in:

    Maybe this will answer some of your questions. My screen name on S/H is C. Dixon. Just look for the Ronald Reagan (THE MAN!) avatar.

    Hope this helps with your questions.
