Hello Again Gentlemen.
I could use some advice on bedding my gun. I'm aware of the value of proper bedding of the action, I've successfully bedded one action myself on a light caliber bolt gun. But what I'm not educated on are the practices of pillar bedding, point bedding (forend bedding upward pressure point), and full length bedding specifically on heavy/DG rifles.
The rifle in question is my Win M70 in 375 Holland. After I can find a good riflesmith, I'm going to send it for everything, one of which will be, this bedding business. Any advice or eduction is greatly appreciated. And if you know a good riflesmith, that would be helpful too.
Thank You."There's more old drunks than there are old doctors, so I guess we better have another round." Willie Nelson

I believe in glass bedding, especially in the bigger boomers. It's quite simple if you plan it properly, have the right materials...and you are a patient person. Check these sites:
