    What is the largest contour that can be pillar bedded into a RP factory Sendero stock? FWIW, the action is a Rem700SA repeater, but single shot conversion is fine.

    I have fitted up to a Lilja #8 and they fit very well. Issues can be milling into the aluminum skeleton fram on the forend. Not a problem if you have a mill, serious porblem if your doing this work by hand.

    I have heard of guys drilling out these stocks and pillar bedding them but have never seen an advantage doing this over a skim bedding job.

    That is for a composite stock with the aluminum internal frame.

    If your talking about one of the laminated wood stocks, pillar bedding is the best way and very easy to do.

    Good Shooting!!
