In reality the Kimbers need to be skim bedded to get the barreled action off the pillars. Lug should be bedded tightly while you're at it. The second thing you need to do is confirm the front ring, front screw is NOT touching the barrel threads. I've seen it too many times to ignore it. The screw into the threads is something I learned after much shouting and hair pulling. I'm now bald and know better. Hope you sort it out.

Yes sir, that is correct.

Blue Loctite on the mount screws, nothing on the ring screws; no need, as ring compression alone keeps those screws tight.

And the previous post from Solrac is spot-on. I skim bed all my bolt guns regardless if they've been pillar bedded or not. All show accuracy improvement after this procedure has been done. Another little item that should always be done at the factory, but seldom is.
