Are these supposed to be here to float the bottom metal ? or should I grind them off.
It is just for alignment and should go down in the stock allowing the bottom metal to contact the stock inletting.
If you pillar bed the stock they can be ground down or contact the pillars at the same time
the bottom metal contacts the stock. Ether way you want to end up with a metal to metal to
metal contact(Action to pillar to floor metal) and the action screws floating (Not touching the sides of the pillars).
If the bottom of the boss is not square I would probably grind it off if I pillar bedded the rifle.
