I have watched several videos and read many articles on stock bedding and have a few rifles I want to do this to but I'm a bit unsure on how much stock material and where all to take material out to make room for the bedding compound. I know not to grind out around the rear tang and around the bolt holes or pillars too much so not to change the height the action sits in the stock but for the rest of it how much thickness do you take out and do you drill holes or grind slots to anchor the compound better, if so how deep, where and what diameter holes? I read one article that I had planned to follow but it said to grind out 1/4" behind the recoil lug??? That didn't sound right but I may could see doing that on a wood stock but probably not on an aluminum bed block stock, just not sure of the inleting part so any experienced help is appreciated. I'm not sure which rifle I want to start on first but I have 3 Remington 700 two with aluminum block stocks and one BDL wood stock. I think I'll try those first then if all goes well will try my Savage 12 in a laminate stock as I heard the Savage was a bit more tricky that Remy 700s. I already have my compound and release agent and a good ideal of how to set the action and secure it for curing so mainly interested in how to inlet the stock properly. Thanks.
