    You can get aluminum contoured,adjustable pillars for not much,most smiths use. They come in the bedding kit Sinclair sells.

    Very nice job. Any bedding job that looks that good has to be good. I am also a fan of the Boyd's laminate stocks. A good laminate stock bedded with pillar blocks is about as good as it gets in my opinion.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this post.

    Really Nice!!! Do a Remington 700 next. I really appreciate you taking the time to show how to do that.

    Hi, yes I did get to try it at the range and with the loads that it likes the accuracy improved to 3 shot groups averaging 1/2'' - 3/4'', which were about an inch and a half before, not bad for cheap factory hunting ammo.
    With the ammo it didn't like before, it still didn't like it after bedding (.243 Superformance).

    The best thing I like is the ability to take the rifle apart, put it back together and still shoot to the same POI.

    Phil

    I have decided to do my Sendero in the same method. The HS stock already has pillars but I drilled them out so the screws wouldn't touch. I bought some longer screws for the bedding purpose, and used shrink wrap for the spacing. I also made up a couple of screws to set in place while I put the bedding
    compound in.
