Well as always it's never easy. I think the leupold bases were lock tighten on will need to try to heat them. Or does anyone have suggestions. Then the numerich stock has pillars that are not centered. They seem to be a 1/4 hole to the left makes the action bare hard left. I guess I'll drill them out an start over

Many of the Kimber stocks warped over time, causing the fore-end wood to touch the left side (usually left) of the barrel. This can be easily remedied by gently sanding the barrel channel to equal opening on both sides of the barrel. Look at that possibility before drilling out the pillars.

Any action screw that comes into contact with a pillar is the kiss of death to accuracy. I would sand out the barrel channel, put 4 wraps of tape on the barrel at the end of the stock to center it, dremmel out about 1/8" or more wood from 1.5" ahead of the receiver all the way back to the tang area and epoxy bed the rifle. Put several wraps of masking tape around the action screw shanks to make sure when it sets up, you will not have contact with the pillars. That should fix your problem.

thanks all for the advise. Its hitting so hard I think starting over with the bedding will be my only option. Any suggestions on the Loctite screws. Ive never messed with this problem in the past.

I'm not sure what you mean regarding the Locktite screws. I personally don't use Locktite on my action screw, but I know some others like to. When properly pillar and glass bedded, you should not need to use Locktitle on the action screws.

Heat will loosen them. A heat gun works the best.

Loctite may not be the problem. Small, (especially fine thread) bolts when over tightened can be a real chore to break free. If Locktite was used, hopefully they knew to use "blue". I would try a hammer and an appropriately sized brass rod on the bolt head to "shock" it. It may take more than one "whack".

If "red" Loctite was used it is going to require heat. I would try a hair dryer all around the tapped area.

Good luck!
