Rifle Bedding

Hi I have a Remington model 700 Sendero Stainless steel fluted barrel 338 Ultra mag
With an HS Precision stock and aircraft grade aluminum bedding blocks that run the full length of the receiver.
I was thinking about having it bedded with marinetex is it worth doing?

    I'm Getting about a 3" group at 100 yards. Was what you had done worth it?

    All the HS stocks need bedding, especially a hard kicking, high torque caliber like the .338 RUM. A good skim bedding job is worth it ....

    A buddy of mind has a Sendero SF in 338 RUM that I have shot several times. It groups under MOA with Barnes X bullets over I-7828. I have shot a 3 inch three shot group @ 400 with it. You really should be getting better groups.

    bed it. i had it done in my sendero 300rum and it'll have shots touching now. for the $50 or so that it'll cost, its worth it.
