Just bought a Bell and Carlson varminter stock, will aluminum beding block, to replace the one that came on the 700SPS Varmint. After I removed some paint over-spray where the action tang rests, it dropped in like a glove...a latex glove. Before I tightened the screws, I checked for slop forward and back, side to side, and rotationally. To my subjective observation, it moved not a milimeter. I can't wait to get it scoped up and put some lead downrange.
What has everyone's experience been with these Bell and Carlson aluminum bedding block stocks?

They're fine but they're even better when lightly skim bedded, all my B&C and HS stocks get skim bedded in tang area, on top of block and in front of recoil lug.

Yes, on the Bell & Carlson stocks. Bought my first, the Medalist "tactical" ( there's that word again), for my Savage mdl 10FP. Got it from "Shooters Discount, in Mississippi, UPS rang the doorbell 2 weeks after it was ordered, $213 delivered. Dropped right-in, near perfect fit, just replaced the factory barrel with a Hart, same contour, and had it skim bedded at that time. Was so impressed with it, ordered the same stock for one of my Remington 700s'. Ditto to all of the above. Rides the bags nicely, like the near vertical "fat" pistol grip, and yes, groups have become slightly smaller. A very good experience all around.

Skim bedded? Educate me, boys.

My understanding: Filling-in minor voids and low spots that may be there due to small differences between receivers of the same type & manufacturer--- not removing any of the original stock material before applying the "skim bedding". Whatever you want to call it: it works for me.

Well after carrying an H.S Precision stocked M-24 for our government for 5 years I can say without question, that the Bell&Carlson stock is as good as any H.S Precision<assuming non-adjustable> stock you can buy. And for alot less money to boot.
