    bedding

    If I was to buy a grs sporter varmint or a joe west thumbhole tactical, do I have it pillar bedded or fully bedded, whats the real difference

    As far as i understand.

    Glass bedding will be a composite of some sort, i use devcon, bedded between the action and the stock, after carefull preperation.

    Pillar bedding would be adding some hollow pillars of a suitable material, ie, alluminium, after drilling out the existing action scrwe holes in the stock and getting the lengths just right and then bedding these into the stock also.

    Some will say the pillars need to be in contact with the action, others will say there should be bedding compound between the action and the pillars.

    But essentially if you were having an action and stock bedded then pillars would be no more bother at the same time.

    Pillar bed it or you're wasting your time. Gives the action solid point of contact in the stock.

    I purchased a laminate stock for Joe west and shot the rifle 1st to see what it would group like and was well pleased, laminate is so hard and doesn't swell like wood it has no give in it so just floated the barrel.
    So I would suggest you try the stock on the action 1st and see how it performs .

    It depends how "hands on" you are - If you're into DIY it's a straightforward and satisfying job to do your self - There's plenty of information out there and you can get a pukka bedding kit from someone like Norman Clarke. You can even buy the pillars ready machined or it's a simple job to turn them up yourself if you have a lathe.
