Bedding Affect Load?

I was wondering if bedding will affect your pet load accuracy? Would you have to tweak it or should it stay the same?

Thanks

    Bedding should equal more consistency due to less movement and that should theoretically tighten up groups with all loads. I don't think a good pet load will become a lousy load because you've bedded the receiver, but you may be able to work up an even better load now that your POI won't be shifting around as much due to the extra vibration.

    There is a good chance that it will Improve the load . It may shift the Point of impact and also
    it will change the harmonics of the rifle.

    So you may have to change the powder charge 1 or 2/10ths to get the best group.

    I have never seen a bedding job done properly hurt accuracy. It can only help.
