Help with Bedding Actions.....

I've got several rifles I'd like to have the actions bedded on. 3 Rugers and 2 Weatherby MK5 Accumarks. Being that I have several I'd like to have done and will have more in the future, I thought maybe I'd learn to do it myself.

Is it very hard to do?
Can you really mess anything up beyond fixing?
Anybody have any good instructions/info/suggestions on doing this with these rifles? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys.

    the search button is your friend. . .

    Look under my screen name or my old one, "nesikachad" and you'll get quite a bit on how I do it.

    Good luck.

    Take a look here:

    Stress-Free Pillar Bedding

    Here:

    Botched Bedding Jobs: How to Spot Common Mistakes

    and here:

    Bedding Project - Sniper's Hide Forums

    as well as with Ernie here:
    Trigger Springs|Aluminum Pillar|Pillar Bedding|Gunsmithing
    and Ernie here:
    Trigger Springs|Aluminum Pillar|Pillar Bedding|Gunsmithing

    Reading these links will help you figure it out and avoid problems.

    I just received the DVD from Richard (first link) a couple of weeks ago and am about halfway through watching it. I, too, have a few Weatherbys and a Remington Sendero to do and plan on using Ernie's trigger springs and Accu-Risers when I bed them.

    Also....should I pillar bed while I'm doing it? I found Callahan Pillar bedding columns at Midway for the Rugers. I believe the Accumark has an aluminum bedding block?
