    I'm thining about replacing my stock on a Ruger 77 MK II 300 Win Mag with a Hogue stock. However I'm not certain which to purchase, pillar bedded or full.

    Does anyone have any experience with either and is the full bedded worth the extra dollars?

    I also plan to replace the trigger with a Timney before Elk hunting this fall.

    Timney is the way to go. You won't regret it.
    Concerning the Hogue, I just ordered the full bed, but is on backorder from Cabelas. Why not go the distance with it?

    I am just order from Midway Hogue full bedding black for $209. My other questions would be should I glass bed the action or barrel, from what I understand this is normally done for wooden stocks. I guess I'll shoot it a few times and then decide if I should glass bed.
