Correcting a poorly inletted stock
Need some advice before I try my hand at pillar and glass bedding.The first rifle I am going to attempt is my Remington 700 LSS (stainless with laminate stock....full size, not "mountain" rifle). The stock is very poorly inletted as the barrel does not run true in the barrel channel when the action screws are tightened. I can set the rifle into the stock and everything appears okay until you tighten the rear screw and it cocks sideways from what looks like excess material under the tang. Can you recommend a method for determining the high spots when the inlet is not 100 correct? Is there something I can put on the action (some sort of marker or paint) that will mark the stock so I know where to sand?
