1st time bedding action where to start?

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I just put a new stock on my M70 and want to bed the action but I don't know where to start. Glass bedding, pillar bedding, both? Any suggestions on bedding kits or where to start?

I would try glassing it first. You can add pillars later, easily enough.

Start with one of the Brownell's products. There are others, but they have it pretty well figured out. Acraglas gel is easy to work with and does a fine job.

+2. Brownells also has instructional videos, and there's some on YouTube, too.
