Savage LRP Bedding

Novice LRH wondering if anyone has or if i need to bed this rifle stock. The rifle comes with a h.s.precision stock. I believe that it has aluminum bedding blocks so wondering if there is any reason to bed. Thanks for the help

Have you shot it yet? If not I would do that first to see if it is even needed!!

I would have it skim bedded just to eliminate any error from that right off of the bat.

I would shoot it first. Mine is unaltered and and appears to be well bedded with consistent .25MOA 5 shot groups. Bedding screws are torqued to 40in/#. It's a 260 Rem.

Mine is also a .260 Rem I have shot it. Shoots about 1/2 moa. I would have had one group at .380 if i dint have one flyer. Thanks for the help I am trying to figure what the gun is capable of and what the jerk at the end of the trigger is doing. Maybe it is just me. I am still working on a good load to use.
