    howa boyds stock bedding

    Just looking for a bit of advice Gents.

    I have just received my new boyds thumbhole feather weight stock and have been looking at bedding this stock. What compounds do people recommend for this and also should I be pillar bedding this at the same time, as looking at the rear action screw there isnt a lot of material around this area to allow drilling out of this area.

    Any tips/advice greatly appreciated

    To be honest i havent. Have you had it in and out of the stock and checked for any zero shift as well ? Just not sure what to expect with the laminate

    Cheers

    I shot mine for a year or so and it was fine, then I got a hankering to fiddle, so I glass bedded it with Acraglas, and it was easy to do, and it certainly didn't make things worse I didn't bother with pillars

    You could make a partial pillar for the rear, just counter bore the screw hole slightly with an end mill, partially machine a pillar to fit leaving the top dia larger. A bit like a cap head screw if you like. Short of that don't bother putting pillars in, if you don't intend removing the stock you don't need pillars, just be careful of the tang are though, there's quite a gap to fill.
