Pillar Bedding Savage McMillan Stock


I have a new Savage 10FCP McMillan in .308. I am considering a Pillar bed Job. I'm pretty handy and the job does not scare me but I have some questions on doing the savage. Looking at my Gunsmithing books and videos on Youtube, most instruction is on 700 pattern actions. Bolts go in the front of the action and the tang. The Savage is different with a bolt at the trigger guard on in the front as you know. Looking at the stock, there does not appear to be a great deal of material there in which to bed a pillar.

Here are some photos of my stock:

Has anyone Pillar bedded one of these and do you have any photos to share of what you did?

Thanks in advance.

When I installed a rear pillar in my save stock I removed the trigger assembly. Pillar bedded and then used a dremel tool to remove the part of the rear pillar which would have interfered with proper function
