I had a quick question, I just got an aftermarket precision recoil lug for my savage build and it is .07 longer than the factory lug and it doesn't fit the bedding block in my hs precision stock. Should I A: grind .07 off the bottom of the lug?
B: drill .07 out of the block?
Or C: make up the difference skim bedding the gun?

I'm trying to decide if I want to bed it or not, the stock has a full length bedding block in it but I have a 30" bull plus brake and I'm thinking I should probably skim bed and add some support for the first few inches of barrel.

Is the lug causing the action to rock and bind in the stock? If it is, definitely take some material off the lug. Every rifle that I have bedded that have bedding blocks in them have benefited in one way or another, mostly accuracy, even if it is just a little.
