Following with interest myself. All my McMillans are bedded too.
Wes under normal circumstances I don’t disagree, however according too Lynn at McMillan the stocks are CNC machine inletted and this puts a for lack of a better description a micro surface profile in the stocks material that bites into the receiver under recoil so it doesn’t shift. Pillars are still present, and the action screws still get torqued as is the norm.Gents,
McMillan offers a "sniper" fill with their stocks. Supposedly, you don't have to bed the action to the stock to get it to shoot. I question that...
My safes have over ten rifles with McMillan stocks on them and ALL are bedded...and shoot great. I wouldn't think of building a Mac stock without bedding it. To me, it's all part of "the build".
However, there is the camp that will shoot the stock unbedded. I would be interested in the results obtained by that group...
Inquiring minds...and all that.
In my mind the build isn't done until bedded properly.
