    First question. Is there a difference between pillar bedding, and full action bedding? Or are these the samething with a different name?

    Second, which is the best method for bedding a H.S. Precision stock to a Rem action, with a factory barrel? Is this something that can be done by the average guy with home tools?

    Third, after hunting season I will be upgrading to a custom barrel, and blueprinting the action. If I bed my rifle the way it is now, will I have to rebed again after the new barrel, and truing up the action?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes to #1

    Yes to #2

    And yes to #3

    #1- You can bed an action into the stock as is, You can install pillars and no bedding, or you
    can install pillars AND bed for the best job.

    #2- the HS Precision already has pillars if it has the insert, so bedding it is strait forward.

    #3-some will say it is not ,But i highly recommend that anytime you change anything you
    should re bed. At least skim bed.
