Re: Poor bedding on Sako 75
Regarding pillar bedding...I often frown on this practice when dealing with walnut stocks.
The act of pillar bedding requires drilling out the factory holes to twice or more the size to accomodate the aluminum pillars. These drilled out holes reduce the integrity of the walnut stock and if the stock was going to splinter ...this is where it will happen...you are dealing with wood and wood grains.
Laminate or synthetic stocks are more ideal candidates for pillar bedding.
Just my opinion since this occured to me.
