For the best accuracy results, I would recommend pillar and glass bedding the action into the stock. You want the action to be as stress free as possible, and unless it's a custom action, there will be imperfections that need to be compensated for. Building a rifle can be stressful but when done right it is very rewarding to see the results. Let us know if there is anything we can help you with along the way, whether it be parts or questions we are happy to help. We actually just launched our first draft website this weekend, so you can find us and contact us through there if you need anything. The site is at nwactionworks.com Good luck with the build and if you don't end up getting this action before it goes, let us know and we will see about getting you another one.
