Which should be done first? Pillar bedding or glass bedding the action? Rem. 700 Mtn. Rifle with wood stock in .280 Rem. 20 yrs old. Not shooting the 1/2 " 100 yd. groups it did when it was newer. Barrel has been cleaned of all foweling. Barrel was free floated when purchased. I figure that shooting over the years had added up wear & tear on the stock/contact points between stock & action. Purchased ScoreHi Pro Bed 2000 Glass Bedding Kit & ScoreHi Delux Pillar Bedding Kit. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Oh... the reason I ask is that I have read & seen video of rifles actions being glass bedded which have already been pillar bedded. This just doesn't make sense to me. Pillar bedding is to have the pillars between the action & the screw heads. If you apply glass bedding compound after pillar bedding...wouldn't that add bedding compound between the action & the top of the pillars???
