Skim bedding is using a very light skim of glass bedding in the tang and recoil lug area of the stock to fill any void of loose or uneven spot between the action and the stock.
I don't own a B&C but do have a H & S Precision on a custom Rem 700 25-06 and a Hogue over molded full bedded stock on a custom Rem 700 264 Win Mag. The Hogue seems to be just as good a stock as the H&S Precision as far as fit and accuracy go but don't get it for a rifle that you want to ride a bag. The Hogue rubber finish is meant to hold on to with wet or sweaty hands so it does not slide (ride) a bag very well. The Hogue full bed stock is about $40.00 less than the B&C medalist full bed stock on average.

B&C's A-5 is TOP NOTCH for F-Class F/TR or as a Tactical (there's that word again!) platform. I've opened them up for 1.250 straight tubes with no problem.
Best price I could find: shootersdiscount.com

I love my B&C stock on my SPS 700.
5 shot groups shrank about a 1/4 inch on average by just swapping out the factory tupper ware stock.

I just bought a Bell & Carlson Tactical/Varmint stock for my Rem. 700. It is a well made stock at a decent price. It has the adjustable chhekpiece, buttstock and sling swivel rail. I would highly recommend this stock to anyone who wants a great stock that is a bit cheaper than some of the others.
