I recently bought a new Remington 700 LSS in 257 Wby. My plans so far are adjusting the X-mark trigger and of course developing and handload(s) for it. But like everyone here I want to make it as accurate as possible. So I am pondering Pillar bedding it. I had a couple of questions. 1. Is this something I can do? I see Brownells has a couple of kits for doing this and I was wondering if there are any folks that had sucess or horror stories of doing a pillar bedding on your own for the first time? 2. Should the pressure tab on the fore-end of the stock stay or go? I have read alot about them helping with whippy barrels. But also read alot about removing them and making the barrel free-floating. Thoughts? I havent shot the gun yet but I am thinking I want to get all the details of accuracy squared away before I start my load development. Everything I have read about bedding it seems pretty straight forward but there are always "Surprises" that pop upon first time projects like this. I am not afraid to try it I just dont want to ding this gun up while I adjust to the learning curve.
