    I have a Remington 700 VS SF with the HS Precision stock in 220 Swift I am getting ready to pillar/glass bed. Where are you guys getting your pillars to pillar bed Remingtons? Thanks

    With the HS Precision stock you should have a aluminum bedding block molded right into the stock. Use that as your pillar and just full action bed.

    I was wondering the same thing. Why would you need/want to pillar bed a stock that already had the Alum. block in it? It's been my understanding pillars weren't needed when using a stock with the Alum. block in them but that all stocks could benefit from a good standard bedding job.

    Thanks for the input guys, I had a little brain fart and never even thought about the aluminum bedding block, I'll just get some accurisers and not need pillars! Thanks

    Every H-S Precision stock I've seen already has pillars!

    Wow, I've never heard of accu-risers before either. I should dream up some gimmick to make $10.95. I've bedded hundreds of HS Precision stocks, if you know how to bed a rifle then these accu-risers are not needed. The aluminum bedding block acts as the pillars but there is some stock preparations before you can just throw in the bedding compound and call it good. There are subtle little tricks that some of us have figured out to properly stress free bed a rifle whether in a stock with a bedding block or in making and installing pillars. I'd suggest let some one who knows what to do do it for you, but on the other hand you'll never learn if you don't try one your self.

    So what preparations are needed on a stock with a bedding block?

    This is just one of many things I won't share, I'm sorry. I make a living doing gun work. If everyone did it I'd be a door greeter at Walmart.

    Oh ok so you can put down others items and me trying to learn to do something on my own while pointing out you know what you're doing and I dont but you can't actually help with anything the thread is asking about. I wasn't aware that you made the bulk of your money bedding rifles. Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

    Back to the point of the thread. I am fairly new to working on my own guns, I have bedded a few but never one with a bedding block. So anyone who would like to actually help and give me some pointers I'm more than greatful for any information and insight you can give me. I like to learn as much as possible.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I believe you took me the wrong way. I'm not saying you don't know what your doing and merely pointed out that the accuriser seem like a gimmick. I've bedded lots of HS Precsion stocks and never needed the accuriser to do a good bedding job. I'm just letting you know you don't need them. Use them if you wish and I hope it works well for you. I'm only willing to give advice, not tell someone how to do something that took me trial error to learn for free. You wouldn't go to your car mechanic and ask him exactly how he fixes a certain part, it's his lively hood to do the work for you.
