One thing to add…if you do this…in my experience, you want the pillars slightly shorter then spec for pillar bedding. If not sometimes the action will only be in contact with the pillars sometimes suspended off the inletting and not setting uniformly.
Take a few thousands off the pillars to have some controlled compression of the stock when the action is settled and torqued to spec for proper contact at the recoil and tang areas.
You want the action to contact the stock and have some compression the same as without pillars.
