Yeah, this is one reason why I don't want to try this myself. At this point I'm not even sure what pillar bedding is and how it relates to bedding the recoil lug. This rifle will sometimes shoot sub 1" groups with the right ammunition, but it doesn't seem to keep the point of aim after I've removed the stock. It seems to have to settle in. Would bedding prevent that? Yes, the B&C stock has pillars. I thought pillar bedding meant putting bedding compound around the pillars. Yes, it is free floating.
