my question is can i just do the tang area again? or do I need to do the whole bedding job over again? (i know doing the whole job over again would prolly be better just not real feasible at this point.) Reason I am asking is I just have hand tools and I don't have a dremel. or anything to remove the compound in the recoil lug area.
Thanks for advice in advance.
I would recommend doing the hole bedding job over . If you don't like the bedding you have
chances are that the rest is not very good.
Plus, it is hard to get uniform pressure/contact when doing partial bedding.
If you do a partial and it doesn't shoot as well as you think, you will be second guessing
