Skim Bed First or Shoot First

I just recieved a Choate Tactical stock for my son's Savage model 10 and was wondering if I should just go ahead and skim bed the action in the v block or should I see how it shoots first before going the through the trouble of bedding it?


What do you all do?

I don't think you go wrong either way.

One way's simply gotta be better than the other. That's only logical.

I always shoot first and bed later. . . if it's necessary.

It seems better that way to me.

What he said.

And I will be surprised if you need it with the Choate with V Block. Don't forget to properly torque the action screws.
