I can attest to this. Years ago, the first work I had done to my Ruger 270 was a trigger job to 3#, bedding, and a muzzle brake. (It was cheap for me since I worked in the gun store, and I had never experienced a brake, so I thought I'd try one, though it wasn't needed).

The bedding job turned that factory rifle that shot 2" groups into 1" groups with the same ammo.
