Took the stock off my A-Bolt to see why I couldn't slide smokers of paper down the barrel between the stock. Turned out to be the sling swivel stud had pushed some plastic from the stock up against the barrel. Easy fix. Turns out the factory bedding is about the size of a large wad of bubble gum and basically only encompasses the recoil lug area. Would there be any benefit to installing pillars and bedding the action/stock? Inwould think there might be.
