To best address this issue is to design it as a Vee Block rather than a cylindrical shape block for a round action like the Remington or Savage. Accuracy International and Choate stock has this type of set up and they're much superior than the HS or B&C stock. I have the AI on my Remmy 308 and I didn't have to bed the action.
Other question is, I've read that aluminuim bedding blocks can put uneven force on the action because the action is heat treated at the factory and warps a little, so isn't a perfect cyclindrical shape on the exterior surface which isn't machined. Is that fact or fiction? Wouldn't it mean that after market stocks that use alloy bedding blocks would still need to be matched to a particular rifles action to achieve perfect bedding?

I think so.... & is why both of my H.S. precision stocked rifles (with aluminum block) are glass bedded (& barrel free floating). Now without double checking my targets, my groups tightened up considerably after I had also glass bedded my H.S. stocks. I had tested loads before & after I had the stocks glass bedded. OH, & unless 5 shots is stated, it seems when most folks talk about "groups", they are referring to 3 shot groups, which can be meaningless sometimes. TRUST ME on this, if nothing else. LOL At some point, 5 shots needs to be used (for too many reasons to mention right now). lolI also agree with Desert Fox, IF we are talking about 3 shot groups, 1/2" is nothing special at 100 yards for an "ACCURATE" rifle. With my predator rifles, I can put most 3 shots in one hole or at least touching each other, which is well under 1/2" in other words.Good Luck with your projectFrank
