I've never done it before but planning on doing it to my Rem 700 in 270 Win. I'm not a total idiot, there's parts missing, but I am handy and think I can manage this. Here's my question. I ordered some pillars from Midway, they don't look that difficult. I have the tooling to do this. What I was wondering is, would it be best to do the pillars first and let them set up and then do the action bedding later. I just hate to screw up a beautiful BDL wood stock. I am thinking that the pillars will give the action a firm foundation and I won't have to worry about removing to much wood from the rear tang area and recoil lug area causing the action to settle to low. What are your thoughts?
