Any advice on this? I've read don't do under the tang, only the rear. Do under the tang and the rear but not the sides. Some use pillars and some say pillars are no help on a 98. I am open to more opinions. My thought was to do the first few inches ahead of the chamber, the rear of the recoil lug and under the tang. The stock is a Richards Micro Fit Bench Mark, "99% press fit". It certainly was a press fit, and everything fit well but obviously tight. I relieved the bottom of the tang and just forward of the front ring. It drops in easily now. Not a lot of clearance but not forced in. I am wondering how much clearance I need before adding bedding material. I'd like to keep it as thin as possible and just "skim" it ,if that will be beneficial. This will not be a wet weather gun. Bright, sunny, warm days zapping 'chucks. Not a lot of recoil either as it's a .220 Swift. Any thought would be appreciated.
