Even glass bedding it not going to stop all the movement of a piece of wood.

Look here for a very detailed explanation of wood movement:

Figure 3-3 is especially revealing.
20 years ago I would hand out copies of Hoadley's "Understanding Wood" which has much of the same information.

I like to say that we glass bed and pillar bed to get the stock to be low compliance coupled to the barreled action so that the stock mass becomes a consistent part of the recoil reaction before bullet escapement.

But i don't think most people glassing and pillar bedding understand all that is required for that, they just perform a ritual.

Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
